Advocates for a Sustainable Future (ASF) seeks to involve Gordon students directly in environmental efforts and education on and around campus by:
Projects and events which ASF has organized include:
"ASF is really making an effort to reach out to the greater campus community through these events. It's also great to see the beginning of many great collaborations with other sustainably-minded organizations."
—Krista Heilman '15
"What gets me excited about Earth Week this year is the way that it will bring a whole new perspective on the beauty of God's Creation in connection to this year's Symposium. By looking at beauty through the lens of stewardship, we will be able to see how we are an integral part of our natural world and it is an integral part of us.
I can't wait to hear Ben Lowe speak about the real way that Christians are responding to the call to steward our planet, not just because we are responsible for it, but because something in all of us can be changed for the better by learning to delight in nature."
—Moira Tescher '16
"Earth week is a period to share with the community how many of us feel year round. On campus, there are many things being done to minimize our impact and future efforts are limited only by our vision and will. We invite the community to recognize God's character as presented in creation and to worship him through stewardship of the earth."
—Michael Lero '16
"The ASF is something special. Being involved in a group where students have the drive to collaborate on core environmental and sustainable issues is a beautiful thing. I'm particularly excited about the "plant your own herb day" during Earth week. Even the simple act of enabling students to personalize cultivation can raise both awareness and appreciation for the creation that surrounds us."
—Damaris Gibaldi '16
"I'm looking forward to walking outside and instantly hearing the exotic beats of the recycled rhythms and the contagious energy that comes with crowds of people enjoying the spring weather and doing "green" things like planting herbs. I'm excited about everything, but especially the DANCE, the trash can/truck exhibit, and the environmental chapels (finally!)"
