Happy September everyone! We hope you all had a smooth transition back into the school year and are looking forward to having an amazing semester. We have exciting things happening this month, including our first bike count of the year and a brand new newsletter segment! Keep scrolling to learn more about our new bike shelters, events on campus, and more!
Come volunteer with us for our first Bike Count! Twice a day, twice a week, every month, we're going to go out and collect data on how many bikes are in and around campus. This helps us gather information about how many people are using alternative transportation to reduce their carbon footprint. Meet at Tivoli 325 (10am and 2pm) and join our staff member for this super fun opportunity! Click the photo above to go to our sign up sheet!
Come help us conduct an audit from one of the new waste stations! We’re excited to see how the newly-added compost bins are helping with overall campus waste diversion. We need help collecting this data, so come get messy with some fellow trash fans and compost connoisseurs! Join us for however long you can on Monday Sept 27th from 11:30am - 1:30pm.

The CU Denver Undergraduate Program in Public Health, along with the MSU Denver Health Institute, AHEC Sustainability, Community College of Denver, and the One World One Water Center will present a live virtual fireside chat with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, acclaimed pediatrician, scientist, immigrant, activist, and author of What the Eyes Don’t See, a story about uncovering the Flint Water Crisis and leading recovery efforts. The event will discuss public health issues that adversely affect underrepresented and underserved communities within the United States and locally. There will be a live Spanish Interpretation to emphasize our intention of inclusivity and pre-recorded questions submitted by students in the Q&A session at the end where we spotlight student voices addressing issues with local health disparities in Colorado and opportunities for community engagement.
After learning more about the Flint Water Crisis in the "What the Eye's Don't See" event, join a Free Zoom webinar hosted by the One World One Water Center to dive deeper into actions taken by local water leaders to protect Denver's water supplies, insure equitable access, and more!

Say “hello” to our wonderful staff from left to right and top to bottom:
Connor, Girija, Kait, Rylee, and Veronica were hired this summer to help with our waste diversion, marketing, and outreach efforts. Interested in learning more about our new staff? Check out our team page!
We are introducing a brand new segment here at the ASCP, known as the Burning Questions column. We want to answer your inquires about making campus more sustainable, as well as leading a more eco friendly life. We encourage all of you to submit questions you may have about the environment and sustainable living. You can submit them by DMing us on any form of social media, or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. At the end of each month we will reveal which question was selected by the staff and address it in the upcoming newsletter!
This summer, we put the finishing touches on our new bike shelters! Check out our video which explains some background on how the shelters were built, where they are, and how to get access.
Come one, come all—events are back! As we welcome students back onto campus, we're excited to announce upcoming volunteer activities. Come help the ASCP support the campus' zero waste vision, transition to alternative transportation, and survey student sustainability interests.
