Celebrating Campus Sustainability Day at Illinois
October 20, 2021 10:01 AM

Greetings and Happy Campus Sustainability Day!

As campuses across the globe mark this day, the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) is pleased and proud to offer new “best practices” videos for all to help us make the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign a model of sustainability.

Our campus takes sustainability very seriously. And for very good reason: As part of our responsibility to uphold the relationship that exists between Native peoples and these lands, we must embrace the climate commitments we’ve made and the values in which that relationship is rooted. Our Illinois Climate Action Plan is a roadmap to sustainability, and iSEE’s new training videos offer specific actions that we can all take, whether students, faculty/researchers, or staff and administrators.

Please visit https://go.illinois.edu/sust_training to watch a short video, then fill out a brief survey. This survey gives you a chance to weigh in on the climate action priorities that will help our campus reach carbon neutrality. And all who fill it out will be entered into a sustainability raffle!

Our webpage also features helpful resources mentioned in the video; you can use them to learn about initiative, groups, and facilities on our campus already making a difference, and you can find out how to partake in these positive actions.

Finally, please join iSEE and Facilities & Services at today’s Campus Sustainability Celebration, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the NCSA lobby and atrium. This event is in appreciation of all the hard work done by our community. It also serves as a chance to look back at our accomplishments — and ahead to the challenges that remain. If you cannot attend in person, please watch the livestream at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HTvCyOyHG4

Thank you,
