  • This session will deliver a methodology for rethinking campus culture and infrastructure to meet climate change challenges. We will share techniques for shifting traditional campuses to educational institutions that safeguard the planet and its people. The largest private New Jersey university is transforming its campus into a river eco-park that improves human and planetary health, delivers resiliency, fuels admissions, and drives student, faculty, and staff retention. You will learn how to build an eco-friendly community by identifying champions across your campus to incrementally build on small successes to achieve big visions.

    Learning Outcome 1: Explain how to transform your campus into an integrated system that delivers climate resiliency, fosters rich, biodiverse ecosystems, and positively affects human health and wellness.

    Learning Outcome 2: Use our incremental process and projects that move away from traditional responses to drive change at your institution.

    Learning Outcome 3: Use stakeholders to drive change at your institution by engaging students, faculty, staff, and administration as advocates for climate resiliency.

    Learning Outcome 4: Develop a series of educational programs that advance sustainability culture to drive change for a greener future at your campus.
