Center for Environmental Programs
Bowling Green State University is signatory to the Talloires Declaration, a ten-point action plan for incorporating sustainability and environmental literacy in teaching, research, operations and outreach at colleges and universities. It has been signed by over 275 university presidents and chancellors in over 40 countries. Our Environmental Sustainability Committee prepared a report detailing actions to move BGSU forward in meeting this obligation. The final report and executive summary are available.
Many projects are on-going and provide opportunities to get involved. To volunteer, contact our Office of Campus Sustainability.
Two of our primary student groups dealing with sustainability are the Environmental Action Group and the Environmental Health Student Group. Get involved!
Good information about the community garden that many of our students have been working on is available at: http://communitygardensbg.tumblr.com/
Particularly exciting now is our upcoming Sustainable U! It will be a exciting conference dealing with multiple aspects of sustainability, including a track featuring student involvement.
