Higher Education Sustainability in Pittsburgh
Highlights from the AASHE 2011 Campus Tours
Supported by the Heinz Endowments, this AASHE publication profiles the sustainability innovations of the Pittsburgh institutions that hosted campus tours during the AASHE 2011 conference. Profiled innovations include green building design, waste elimination, alternative transportation options, climate positive goals and community partnerships toward sustainability. Compiled from tour materials, surveys and follow-up interviews, this report also captures the knowledge gained and lessons learned by the tour participants.
This report is a culmination of the ideas presented during AASHE’s Summit on Sustainability in the Curriculum to address how higher education institutions can further infuse sustainability topics into college and university curricula. Recognizing the scale of the challenges faced by higher education and the urgency with which changes must be addressed, this report includes opportunities for building on further strategies and gives recommendations for broad national strategies for meeting these challenges.
This manual is designed to assist colleges and universities in creating climate action plans. It is intended to fill the gap in currently available resources by outlining a how-to approach for each of the various steps required to develop and implement a plan for campus climate leadership. It was released in July 2009.
A wiki version of this report is also available.
