Campus Sustainability Day: October 22

Various higher education campuses across the nation will be celebrating Campus Sustainability Day tomorrow, Wednesday, October 22, 2008.

Campus Sustainability Day is an annual event at colleges and universities across the nation. Usually held in October, colleges and universities are encouraged to "create events on campus and elsewhere that draw participants for the exchange of ideas and knowledge among faculty, staff, and students, from across all departments and disciplines, and even from across the campus "edge" between town and gown."

Campus Sustainability Day began in 2003 and is an initiative of the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP). In support of colleges' and universities' local activities, SCUP hosts a supporting webcast for viewing on campuses. This year's webcast will be "Climate Realities, Progress and Challenges." The webcast will be moderated by Alan Rifkin of The New York Times and will feature Anthony D. Cortese (Second Nature), Richard H. Moss (World Wildlife Fund), and Jessy Tolkan (Energy Action Coalition).
