City Green Bag Lunch-n-Learn Thursday, Jan. 17

Colorado Springs education facilities are managing their energy using innovative and standard methods. At the City’s next Green Bag Lunch-n-Learn we’ll hear through a panel discussion how the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Colorado College, School District 11, Academy School District 20, Harrison School District 2 and the Air Force Academy are making strives to reduce energy use and fossil-fuel based energy. At the free Thursday, Jan. 17 event we’ll also explore the next 1000 megawatt question, how do such efforts translate to students in the learning environment?

The lunch-n-learn runs over the noon lunch hour, from 12:11 to 12:49 p.m., at the City Administration Building, 30 S. Nevada, in Suite 102. Attendees are encouraged to bring and enjoy their lunches during the presentation. Those who come have the opportunity to win a door prize tote bag made from reused City banners. 

Each month, the City sponsors a lunch-n-learn topic on an environmental issue. Questions? Contact Nick Kittle at 719-385-6609 or
