Western's Student Government will be hosting, "Be The Change In A Messed Up World With Rob Greenfield," on Monday, Sept. 9 at the Lunda Center, 319 7th St. N., La Crosse.
Rob Greenfield is an adventurer and activist who embarks on extreme adventures and activism campaigns to bring attention to important global issues and inspire change. He has dived into thousands of dumpsters to raise awareness about our broken food system, cycled across the USA three times on a bamboo bicycle, wore all of his trash for a month to show how much garbage the average Westerner creates, and lived off the grid in a tiny house demonstrating sustainable living systems. He is currently growing and foraging 100% of his food for a year and is 10 months into the project.
Rob will share these adventures and the lessons he's learned on how we can all be the change we wish to see, even in the difficult times that we live in.
Rob's work has been featured by thousands of media outlets worldwide. Rob donates 100% of his media income to grassroots nonprofits and has committed to living simply and responsibly for life.
The event is free and open to the public.
