UBC’s Got Skillz is back, just in time for the end of the semester! Common Energy UBC has set up another round of exciting, hands-on workshops to help you release some stress and take your mind off exams and papers. At the same time, you’ll be learning some crafty DIY skills in a sustainable way!
The workshops that will be running are listed below, so if you want more information, just click on the links to go to the Facebook event pages:
ENERGY CONSERVATION. MUSIC. ART. FREE. FOOD.
When will you hear that in one sentence? Join Common Energy UBC for Earth Hour 2013 for our 2nd annual open-mic event featuring acoustic performances, UBC Improv, slam poetry, A Capella and more!
When: Saturday March 23, 7:00-9:30pm (actual international Earth Hour begins at 8:30pm)
Where: Buchanan MASS (Block D)
Turning off lights just for one hour won’t solve the environmental crises around the world, but the message generated by communities everywhere will emanate the need for change. Join us on March 23rd for these conversations, good music, good company, and an understanding of needing change at the community level. Visit our Facebook page “Earth Hour 2013 at UBC” or the Common Energy website for more details!
