Reverb http://www.reverb.org/index.php just completed their 2010 Campus Consciousness Tour with Drake and Ben Harper and Relentless7. CCT is half rock tour, half environmental campaign looking to inspire and empower students, while leaving a positive impact on each community it visits. Students had the opportunity to volunteer, table for their student group, take a photo at the CCT photo booth, and pledge to lower their environmental impact, all while enjoy the music styling’s of Drake and Ben Harper! The tour aims to educate and motivate students to start their own positive, environmental campaigns. They even offer a toolkit on their website for students interested in mobilizing their group towards zero impact. Along with all this, CCT entertains and engages with the most minimal environmental footprint possible. They use Bio-diesel, CO2 offsets, sustainable merchandise, biodegradable catering supplies, and more. For community engagement, an Eco-village is set up for local Non-Profits to come out and promote their cause. Students, music and the environment, it doesn’t get much better than that. Check out Campus Consciousness Tour 2010 http://www.reverb.org/project/CCT/ and learn how to get your campus involved and on its way to campus consciousness.
