Students conduct an audit of the trash produced by the campus community to help determine better ways to reduce waste.
BGSU MARKS NATIONAL CAMPUS SUSTAINABILITY MONTH
October is National Campus Sustainability Month, a time to celebrate accomplishments and seek further opportunities for making BGSU a more energy-efficient, environmentally responsible institution. Each step brings BGSU closer to its stated goal of carbon neutrality and raises awareness.
“While there’s always something going on in the sustainability area at BGSU, it’s great to find a time to focus on our goals and how we are going to achieve them,” said Dr. Nicholas Hennessy, campus sustainability coordinator. “BGSU joins hundreds of other universities across the country in helping to connect the community to sustainability and the many benefits that can be obtained by pursuing it in our construction/renovation, purchasing choices, efforts to reduce waste, and overall campus operations.”
A number of events and activities are planned for faculty, staff and students to highlight the need for sustainability both locally and globally.
