Campus Sustainability Month

October is Campus Sustainability Month!

Building on the long standing success of Campus Sustainability Day (historically held on the 4th Wednesday in October), AASHE is inviting campuses to join us in celebrating Campus Sustainability Month throughout the month of October! The month will provide an unparalleled series of opportunities to engage and inspire incoming students and other campus stakeholders to become sustainability change agents.

In 2016, these opportunities include:

Institutions of higher education, non-profits, and businesses can celebrate Campus Sustainability Month by organizing one or more events during the month of October. These events might include: announcements of new sustainability commitments or accomplishments, film screenings, award ceremonies, tree plantings, teach-ins, conferences, nature walks, green product showcases, sustainability competitions, power plant tours, information fairs and more! Learn more about Campus Sustainability Month.

Watch AASHE's webinar "Campus Sustainability Month - Opportunities to Engage" (originally broadcast Aug. 26, 2015) to learn about how you can participate and how to leverage this international event to promote sustainability on your campus.

Please let us know how you plan to celebrate and use #CampusSustainabilityMonth to share Campus Sustainability Month content on Twitter and Instagram.

We will be hosting a sustainability activity in the lobby of a residence hall. The activity will most likely be Jeopardy-styled, but geared towards sustainability topics. We will also be serving snacks and giving tours of our new Sustainability Living Learning Community Suite, which is equipped with features such as a waste analysis station, food composter, and hand powered washing machine.
