Better World conference this Saturday

Looking for another excuse to blow off your mounting work? Interested in design and the environment? Have we got the thing for you.

On Saturday, the crew from A Better World By Design will be back at it again, this time setting up shop in Smitty-B for a free one-day “mini-conference” open to the general public. Focusing on design-based solutions to local PVD social and environmental issues, the event will feature design workshops, a locally sourced catered lunch and a rapid prototype contest that’ll net the winner a cool $1,000. Who doesn’t like that? Dolla’ dolla’ bills, y’all!

The event is running from 9:45 am to 4 pm this Saturday, April 28, and space will be limited, so definitely register here if you’re interested. As an added bonus, those who make it to the morning portion get to experience something called the “Providence Granola Project.” Not exactly sure what that means, but let’s hope it’s nothing like the project they’re featuring in the afternoon
