Sustainable Lake County

A Project by Voices of Lake County

Dawn at Half Day Forest Preserve in Lake County, Illinois


We invite you to participate in Voices of Lake County, a multi-year, interdisciplinary series of collaborative projects across the Communication Arts, Fine Arts and Humanities division of College of Lake County. Voices of Lake County seeks to celebrate, empower, and amplify voices from the wide range of communities located in Lake County, Illinois, especially those that have been historically silenced or underrepresented in higher education. Our goal is to showcase the diverse experiences of our region and encourage those from within and outside of Lake County to better understand and appreciate our unique neighborhoods, communities, histories, and cultures. 


Each year we will focus on a different collaborative project or theme. This theme for the 2023-2024 academic year is Sustainable Lake County, an exploration of environmentalism and sustainability in Lake County through the lens of the arts and humanities. 

This year's project will include a series of workshops and related events, including:

Events and workshops are open to the public! We encourage faculty to develop classroom projects and invite students to participate in our Sustainability Fair on Earth Day. Visit the "Sample Projects" page to learn about ideas for class projects across a variety of disciplines.
