It’s easy being green: 2009 Campus Sustainability Day is Oct. 21

Sustainable SMUSMU students, faculty and staff will gather at the Flagpole at mid-day Oct. 21 for games, giveaways and green tips as the Hilltop celebrate the 7th annual national Campus Sustainability Day.

Members of the University’s Campus Sustainability Committee will moderate a game of Environmental Jeopardy, encourage students to sign a green pledge, and introduce the residence halls’ new team of E-representatives from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Winners of the SMU Green Minute video competition will be announced at noon.

“SMU has a long list of sustainable practices on an institutional level that people just don’t know about,” says Campus Sustainability Chair Michael Paul. “We’d love for people to check out our website at smu.edu/sustainability to find out what we’re doing. And it’s also a good place to find tips for easy things that our community can do to keep SMU green.”

Campus Sustainability Day was founded in 2002 as part of the Society for College and University Planning‘s early efforts to support campus planning for sustainability. Several organizations now join with SCUP to support the event, including the Higher Education Associations’ Sustainability Consortium.
