On October 26th many college campuses across North America celebrated the 9th annual Campus Sustainability Day (CSD). Campus Sustainability Day highlights the green accomplishments and initiatives of staff, faculty and students.
Since 2003, CSD has been a time to acknowledge the success of the sustainability movement in higher education. It is also an opportunity to bring different groups on campus together for a united purpose. CSD events and celebrations can be a catalyst for collaborations on campus, they also strive to advance sustainability in higher education.
CSD is a project of the Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC), a consortium of about a dozen higher education associations. The working group included participation from Second Nature, U.S. Green Building Council’s Center for Green Schools, and NWF’s Campus Ecology Program.
There were over 70 events that took place on CSD. To see the CSD list of events click here.
