The Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston invites you to their 2018 Kick-Off Event at the University of St. Thomas. We will hear from faith leaders of a variety of faiths on the relationship between their faith and the natural world. There will be a presentation on the top ten free environmental resources for houses of worship. We will recap activities from 2017, and discuss plans for 2018. You’ll get an opportunity to provide your input into 2018 planning via a survey. And, we ask those who can do so to bring some snacks to share for our break-out sessions, during which we’ll get to know each other better. We’ll provide beverages to accompany the snacks. People of all faith are encouraged to attend, as are representatives of local environmental non-profits that would like to work with people of faith on environmental issues. Please join us!
The Take Care of Texas Video Contest is a fun way for young people to learn about protecting the environment and come up with creative ways to share this knowledge with others! Students film a 30-second video that shows positive ways to Take Care of Texas. The students that submit the best videos can win great prizes, awarded by the contest sponsor, Waste Management of Texas, Inc.
The public has an opportunity to pick their favorite videos January 11 through 25, 2018. A panel of TCEQ staff and representatives from Waste Management Texas will choose the first, second, and third place winners from each of the grade groups. Winners will be announced February 20, 2018.
