Event Planning

Main Content

On hold. Coming soon!!

Are you planning a campus event? No matter the size of your event, you can take steps to make your event more sustainable; including the promotion of sustainability and the environmental benefits of responsible consumption.

You can even strive to be Zero Waste, where all materials used can be reused, recycled, or composted as opposed to being added to landfills. We are here to help you! Contact us at sustainability@siu.edu for a consultation. 

Services offered by the Sustainability Office include: 

  • Waste planning leading up to the event.
  • Waste station set up.
  • Volunteers on the event day.
  • Signage resources.
