UALR celebrates Earth Day

Submitted by Victoria Hickey on March 20, 2015 – 1:22 pm6 Comments

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will be hosting and participating in numerous events to celebrate Earth Day.  Starting March 21, UALR’s Sustainability Committee will be participating in Heifer International’s annual Beyond Hunger event.  There will be many other events leading up to the big celebration, which will be April 8.

On April 4, there will be a Coleman Creek clean up and on April 6 there will be an Earth Talk and a few other events.  The main celebration on April 8 will consist of many events, a few being the Trojan Trailblazers Green Walk, a farmer’s market, food trucks and the Semi-Annual Recycling Drop-off.

“Our goal is to create awareness about sustainability, showcase sustainability-related projects and activities that are occurring on campus, and engage our local community,” Kim Tran, the Sustainability Committee Chair, said.

These events are open to UALR students, faculty and staff, as well as the local community.

We want our community to see practical ways they can adopt a more sustainable lifestyle, as well as be more globally aware,” Tran said.

    I made a clock turn on a light, charge batteries
    and charge small power tools in 2009
    I shared with Japan after the tsunami which resulted in this

    And shared with China and here what a china designer did

    with the piece I shared

    When I gave this to a company in Canada I was viciously attacked
    which caused me to be homeless. Now they are leaving me on the street
    with no assistance of a sign of what they do to people who try
    to make products themselves.
    I have had my product stolen 40 times from companies
    in Canada and America and they are not changing
    I only wanted a clock to charge my devices where there is no light
    and in return for my work I have been made homeless
    Please give awareness of my struggle.
    I would not want anyones children to attempt what I have done and have
    to suffer what I am living. Something must be done to change this
    I am certain their actions will get worse towards others if this is allowed to continue
