earthNext week might be jealous, considering this week is getting all the attention. This week is not only Earth Week, but Genocide Awareness Week.

To help us fix our somewhat neglected relationship with Mother Earth, the ASUC Sustainability Team is hosting a variety of events in order to educate people on how they can incorporate sustainability into their life. Thursday from 12:00-4:00 p.m. there will be a green expo in Lower Sproul Plaza in addition to an eco-fashion show from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The full list of events can be found here.

On a much more somber note, the Armenian Student Association has a series of events this week commemorating the Armenian genocide and other such violent occurrences. Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Wheeler Auditorium there will be an Element concert and on Friday at 12:00 p.m. will be United Hands Across Cal. A more complete listing can be found here.

At the very least, these events are good enough causes that you can use them to justify your procrastination on all those final papers you need to turn in.
