On Friday, September 1st, Natalie Wahl, Instruction Librarian, called the first Sustainability Committee meeting of the Fall semester. A few items on the agenda included campus composting, an ongoing search for a student sustainability coordinator, adopting a campus garden, and planning upcoming events such as Global Climate Change Week (Oct. 9-15) and “Leeward Battle of the Buildings”–each building will compete to see who has used the least electricity in October compared to the usage data collected in September. Natalie will also hold a Library Learning Series session – Green Library Resources, October 19th, 12:30-1:30 p.m., Kapunawai.
The Sustainability Committee is open to all faculty, staff, and students and its goal is to make our community more sustainable!
