Leave Your Mark, Not Your Footprint

Through 13 December, Perkins Library Gallery

The concept of sustainability as we know it today owes it origins to the small hamlets of 14th century Germany, where villagers relied on extracting a sustainable yield from collectively-owned forests.  History is punctuated with examples of cultures that have flourished or died off due to the economic, social and environmental sustainability of their daily behavior and decisions.  This exhibit, Sustainability at Duke: leave your mark, not your footprint,  explores these issues and illustrates how members of the Duke community can create a more sustainable world. Cosponsored by Sustainability at Duke and the Libraries in collaboration with the Nicholas School of the Environment.

Generally, the Perkins Gallery is open Monday-Saturday, 9am-9pm, and 10am-9pm on Sunday.  Visit http://library.duke.edu/exhibits/ for more information or call 919.684.3009 to confirm hours.
