Discussion and action on sustainability with the I THINK program at SJSU

Campus Sustainability Strategy Meeting September 10, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amie @ 5:50 pm

Dear SJSU Students, Staff, Faculty, and Administrators,

Millions of students, staff, faculty, and administrators in colleges and universities across the country are awakening to the environmental impacts that our institutions have on the world. With issues such as climate change, waste management, and our food system becoming increasingly important, it is vital that universities take a lead role in developing sustainable practices. With almost 30,000 students, SJSU has the opportunity to become a leader in sustainability in the Silicon Valley and California.

We stand at a critical point in time in the sustainability movement on college and university campuses. College campuses across the nation are linking teaching, research, and campus engagement to focus on sustainability. At SJSU energy for change abounds, but it lacks focus. We need to create a collaborative framework for implementing change on our campus.

Please join us for a Campus Sustainability Strategy Meeting on Sep 12, 2007, 5:30p to 7:00p. We will discuss the state of campus sustainability, current progress at SJSU, and where we should go from here. The meeting will have an interactive format, so be prepared to share your ideas and opinions.

What: Campus Sustainability Strategy Meeting
Where: Guadalupe Rm, Student Union
When: Sep 12, 2007, 5:30p to 7:00p

    I would like to invite you and your group to participate in the development of home/commercially owned and partially cared for gardening projects.Vegetables,fruit,herbs and flowers are to be grown and expand to include socializing,personal growth and enhancing resource benefits.
    If accepted,the first garden is being discussed to be on the property of the International Students Dormitory 150 square foot plot.

    If,you and your club is interested,we should all meet and brainstorm the details and plan together.
