Why the Integrated Process is Imperative for Campus Sustainability
Why the Integrated Process is Imperative for Campus Sustainability Hosted by AASHE, the Center for Green Schools at USGBC and Second Nature Tuesday, July 23, 2013, 2:00-3:00 PM EST Register Now! Sustainability practitioners know that it takes a rapidly mobilized army to move a campus forward on the path to a resilient and climate-smart future. Having the full campus community involved in sustainability projects, behavior change, and long term planning creates exciting opportunities and momentum, but also brings nuances and challenges to the process. Taking an honest look at the integrated process in action for campus sustainability, panelists will discuss how institutions can best create a supportive community in pursuit of its sustainability goals. Looking at specific instances of how this has (and hasn¹t) worked, panelists will address sustainability frameworks such as the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment, USGBC's LEED green building rating system, and AASHE STARS as applied to areas such as curriculum, facilities and campus culture. Through this three-part series, AASHE, the Center for Green Schools at USGBC and Second Nature will present a framework for institutional leadership that addresses the fundamentals of the triple bottom line of sustainability and the imperative for action. The series will take an in-depth look at the importance of stakeholder engagement, strategies for climate adaptation in pursuit of resiliency, as well as the opportunity to tie environmental stewardship to social equity and well being.
