CAMPUS SUSTAINABILITY MONTH 2019

WHAT IS Campus Sustainability Month?

Each year during October, colleges and universities around the globe celebrate sustainability in higher education. Throughout the month, these campuses hold events in hopes of inspiring students and other stakeholders to become agents of change at their universities and worldwide. Some events have included teach-ins, pledge drives, waste audits, letter writing campaigns, service projects, and much more! These events serve as a complement to Earth Day and Earth Week celebrations which occur in April.

According to AASHE (Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education), Campus Sustainability Month grew out of Campus Sustainability Day, which was first organized in October 2003 by the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) and has typically been celebrated on the fourth Wednesday in October.
