Campus Sustainability Day Oct. 20
October 11, 2010 — The University of Wyoming's efforts to address climate change will be among information available during Campus Sustainability Day Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Members of the Campus Sustainability Committee will provide information at a table in the Wyoming Union breeze way from 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m..
The focus of this year's event is "the empowerment of individuals and campus communities to bring about changes that promote sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint to mitigate climate change," says committee member Kim Zafft.
Information on what UW is doing as an institution to address climate change, plus tips on what students can do in their personal lives to help UW meet its commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 will be available.
UW is a charter member of the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment. As such, the university strives to be a leader in finding innovative ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. UW's Climate Action Plan, written by the Campus Sustainability Committee, includes many opportunities for the engagement of the student body in addressing this challenge.
