Have you been looking for a way to start a conversation about sustainability and engage your fellow colleagues?  Hosting a brown bag lunch is a great way to get people thinking, and it’s as easy as choosing a couple of TED Talks or a documentary, grabbing some snacks, and gathering everyone together to watch, listen, and discuss.

The FAS Green Program hosts a Brown Bag Lunch event each month that highlights different sustainability topics ranging from climate change and green design to food systems and renewable energy.  We have curated several discussion topic examples from past lunches below for you to start hosting your own event and engage with your fellow staff, researchers, and/or students.

Each collection of talks and clips below is under an hour in runtime. Pick the collection that you feel will be most engaging or create your own. Be sure to leave time for discussion and conversation, and to ask for input on your next topic.
