Community Relations

Green Lobby Day

‌Loyola University’s Office of Community Relations and the Institute for Environmental Sustainability partner with our local organizations Edgewater Environmental Sustainability Project, Illinois Environmental Council and others to plan the inaugural Green Lobby Day in Springfield, Illinois.

Loyola students will join with community members to take part in larger conversations regarding green policies on a state and national level. Working together, students and local residents of Edgewater and Rogers Park will engage with Illinois legislators to advocate for a series of environmentally-focused legislative measures, including a bill that would ensure the state’s continued investment in renewable energy sources. Through this event, Loyola students will be learn how to be an environmental advocate and bridge knowledge in the classroom with legislative priorities as part of the Institute for Environmental Sustainability's larger advocacy and policy focus.
