Network Call: Sustainability on Campuses

This spring we held a networking call to connect academic Fellows who are interested in expanding their schools' sustainability efforts. Nine Fellows attended the lively call, and topics ranged from how to get involved in a school's sustainability efforts to the details of applied social learning on campuses, and from green revolving funds to support facilities improvement to ways to incorporate sustainability into curricula through faculty involvement.

You can learn more about the call attendees by visiting their profiles (linked above).

A list of resources grew out of the call that we would like to share with you.  If you have any additional resources, please feel free to add them to the comments section below or email us to have them added directly to the post.

We would particularly like to thank 1990 Fellow Harold Glasser for this list of resources and for his guidance in planning and following up after the call.
