Party for a purpose
This event is to raise awareness about what all of us can do to reduce, reuse and save our environment! There is usually free organic food, art tables with recyclables, and biodegradable products! And last year, the local band Groovascape played in support of this good cause. View photos.
Power Shift is a national youth summit to solve our generation's energy & climate crisises. 10,000 young people will share ideas, learn new skills, make connections, and establish a national voice for our generation. Roanoke College has taken a delegation of students for the past two years and helps subsidize the cost by fundraising. View the Power Shift website.
Roanoke College students hope the results of a green roofs study would reduce rainwater runoff at some of downtown Roanoke's buildings and save energy costs for the city.
