Bottle Recycling at LIU Post

In June 2012, the LIU Post Recycling Program received 40 new recycling bins from the Coca-Cola/Keep America Beautiful Recycling Bin Grant Program. The Coca-Cola/KAB Recycling Bin Grant Program supports recycling in communities and on college and university campuses by providing bins to selected grant recipients for the collection of beverage container recyclables. Grants are provided to a limited number of applicants who can demonstrate how their proposals will lead to sustainable recycling opportunities.

The new bins are in the shape of a water bottle and will help increase the visibility of the LIU Post Recycling Program.

Bottle BinHere is where you can find Dasani Bottle Bins::

• Hillwood – East/West Café
• Hillwood – Fishbowl
• Hillwood – 2nd Floor Lounge
• Bookmark Café in the Library
• The POD dining area in Pell Hall
• Kahn Hall Lobby
• Pratt Concession Stand
• Phys. Ed Department (Back of Pratt
• Lorber Hall – 2nd Floor Lounge

Other bins were placed in various offices/departments that generate lots of beverage containers. Some of these bins will remain in storage for recycling at large events on campus. Student clubs and organizations may request these bins for their events when they submit a program request to the Department of Student Life and Leadership Development.

Education for Global Citizenship

Prof. Scott Carlin will be a co-chair for this international UN conference.

YERELCE

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals Together.

Global citizenship is no longer an ideal, but rather a requirement for creating a peaceful, just, and environmentally sustainable world of interconnected societies. Global citizenship education “aims to empower learners to assume active roles to face and resolve global challenges and to become proactive contributors to a more peaceful, tolerant, inclusive and secure world.” Education for global citizenship should support innovative pedagogies aligned with these ideals and the Sustainable Development Goals.
