Going green in Colorado
An update from Jason, a senior majoring in music composition, with a minor in history:
Nothing represents the beauty of environmental awareness like Colorado. So it is fitting to be here in Denver for the 2010 AASHE Conference, focusing on campus sustainability!!!
I am here as a composer thinking about numerous ideas. First, I would like to find someone to collaborate with in order to increase environmental awareness.
Second, a coal-fired power plant is being constructed by my home in Riesel, Texas, so since I did not win against the power plant’s construction, I hope to keep pressing forward for a better environment here. Persistence pays off.
Third, I want to increase my knowledge of “green” – there is a plethora of knowledge here!
Sunday was mostly an orientation day, so I found time to head out to Boulder and hike up around the Rockies in Chataqua Park with a couple of friends. Included here are a couple of pictures of what earth looks like, clean and untouched.
