Author Aja Barber to Speak to Cornellians, Talk Consumerism and Sustainability


In a Thursday evening virtual event, prominent writer, consultant and stylist Aja Barber will speak to Cornellians about the intersection of consumerism and climate change. 

The event, which will consist of a discussion and live Q&A with the audience, is partially sponsored by Cornell’s Sustainability Office, in addition to nine other University organizations. It is a part of Cornell’s Beyond Waste program, a two-month-long institutional waste reduction campaign encouraging students to re-evaluate their waste management habits. 

Running from Feb. 14 to Mar. 26, the program will occur in conjunction with the nationwide Campus Race to Zero Waste competition, which provides tools and resources –– like mentors, case studies and webinars –– to colleges across the country in an effort to increase their sustainable pathways toward zero waste on campus.
