Campus Sustainability Day 2015
Facilities Management along with the Mission Green Student Association will be celebrating Campus Sustainability Day 2015 on Thursday, October 22, 2015. The goal of Campus Sustainability Day is to create awareness and involvement to advance sustainability through education and community engagement. Please support this important cause. Below are some of the day's highlights:
- 10:00 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. - Kick off with a Celebratory March to celebrate FAU's ecologically sensitive areas. This is a guided, educational tour of one of the FAU Preserve areas and will initiate at the Tortuga Trail (lot 5 entrance) and end on the Breezeway.
- 10:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. - Campus Sustainability Day Mini-fair - Mission Green Student Association representatives, along with other eco-friendly student clubs and organizations, will be promoting sustainable practices. Some initiatives include campus cleanups, tailgate recycling, and reducing our carbon footprint.
- 2:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. - Welcome President Kelly! Dr. Kelly will speak about his vision of a sustainable University
- 2:15 p.m. - Launch of the "Keep FAU Beautiful" campaign. Modeled after the national campaign of "Keep America Beautiful, this is to promote sustainability and environmental awareness and responsible stewardship of the environment and involves the University community at large. The first initiative of "Adopt a Spot" will also be launched. Modeled after the national program of "Adopt a Highway" and "Adopt a Space", this program will solicit commitment from University groups (student groups, faculty and staff, departments, colleges, etc.) to maintain a designated area of the campus. With support and direction from Facilities Management, MGSA will be the first to participate in this initiative with adoption of green space along the breezeway.
