GC Shades of Green (SOG), of Georgia College (GC), is a sustainability initiative begun by Dr. Doreen (Dee) Sams, Associate Marketing Professor for her master's class in Business Ethics and Global Issues in 2008 and has grown into a series of events sponsored by the GC Sustainability Council serving GC students, staff, faculty and the surrounding community.
The 2013 Water, Energy and Transportation (W.E.T.) Symposium is a great opportunity for everyone to get engaged and learn about environmental sustainability and careers across disciplines in sustainability. Events will be held April 22, 23, & 24.
We welcome back General Motors Corporation & Mage Solar from our last event held in 2011 to this years events and thank them for their continuing support of Georgia College. We extend a welcome to those new to GC Shades of Green including: Georgia Power a Southern Company, the Green Chamber of the South, the National Wildlife Federation, and Sprint. Betty Woodman, an Emory graduate with her Ph.D. from Emory in Ethics and Leadership will be hosting panel discussion - "The Power of the Role of Leadership, Legislation, and Ethics in Sustainability."
This year's SOG will bring some new and exciting surprises thanks to the kindness of General Motors Corporation. Thanks to Dr. Karen Berman and Jimmy Holder, the play "Enemy of People" will be presented and thanks to Jeniffer Sams (Master of Art Education University of Florida) this year will include a 2-1/2 day eco-art display of the works of GC students and community members.
