The Bard College C2C program offers weekend skills-based workshops for recent graduates and current college students. Upon completion of the conference, every participant joins a C2C Fellows network, which now has over 500 members. As part of the EcoFellowship program, CET provides Fellows with the opportunity to attend conferences for professional development. Earlier this month, two of the current EcoFellows, Natasha and Becky, chose to attend the Bard College C2C Conference. Natasha and Becky discuss their personal experiences and conference takeaways below. Also, check out last year’s fellows’ blog to learn more about the program and day-to-day schedule of events. It’s a great opportunity for EcoFellows to attend this conference year after year!Read More»

This Tuesday, November 27, join the global movement and give back to your community by participating in #GivingTuesday! Entering its seventh year, #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. The campaign connects diverse groups of individuals, communities, and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage giving.
For 40 years, the Center for EcoTechnology has helped people and businesses save energy and reduce waste. Each year, through our outreach and education efforts, we attend over 100 events—farmers markets, festivals, and other community and business events—and help thousands of people make green changes in their lives. Our mission is to make green make sense for everyone!
Five new EcoFellows have recently joined our team here at the Center for EcoTechnology! From touring Smith College and learning about their campus wide green efforts, to visiting the EcoBuilding Bargains store, to viewing CET on the live television show Mass Appeal, these past few weeks have been a whirlwind of learning, engagement, and fun. We are so excited for all the opportunities and projects to come, and want to introduce you to each of the EcoFellows so that you can learn a bit more about each of us!
The EcoFellowship Program has proven to be tremendously effective in building understanding and promoting action at the grassroots level. Each year CET recruits and trains recent college graduates from across the country, preparing them to take on today and tomorrow’s most pressing environmental challenges.
This time of year is always bittersweet. While we are so encouraged by the profound impact of these five individuals, it is always hard to say goodbye. Here are just some of the things they did in the past 11 months:
- Avery Cross updated the food waste estimation guide published on the RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts website. This is a valuable tool used across the country.
- Willow Cohn managed the EcoBuilding Bargains Bash – making it our most successful yet! Willow unfortunately had to miss the graduation as she’s already begun her next chapter as a Sustainability Analyst at Bell’s Brewery in Michigan.
- Jorge Guarin began developing an educational series for businesses on a variety of topics, collaborating with 1Berkshire, the official Berkshire County Regional Economic Development Organization and Regional Tourism Council.
- Shelby Kuenzli created multiple videos about CET’s impact for Earth Month, expanding the way we communicate about our valuable work.
- Morgan O’Connor worked on developing powerful tools for Solar Access, a new program for middle-income homeowners.
