The past year of wildfires, floods, and toxic hazards are urgent warning signs to look closer at the intersection between human health and the health of our environment. The interdependence between people and the planet is the key to sustainability and that’s why the theme for Campus Sustainability Month is Building A Healthy Future.
Through events, collaborations, and service, learning & engagement opportunities, the Office of Sustainability, will engage in conversations about environmental wellness, ecological health, and how to build and sustain thriving and equitable communities.
