Top Universities are Going "Green" in an Effort to Allow Students to Learn in a Sustainable Community

Top Universities are Going "Green" in an Effort to Allow Students to Learn in a Sustainable Community

The ACUPCC is also a collaborative effort that holds workshops, conferences and webinars in order to continue promoting energy efficient campuses nationwide. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has partnered with ACUPCC to offer free access to Green Building Basics and LEED online courses to all signatories of the commitment. Also, the Climate Action Planning Wiki is an excellent resource as a “how-to” guide for institutions to plan and implement their climate action plan. Created by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), this wiki outlines a plan for everything from determining the carbon footprint and emissions trajectory, to greenhouse gas mitigation strategies, to how to finance a campus climate action. This is an excellent resource for all colleges and universities interested in developing a climate action plan.
