Montgomery County Community College will join hundreds of colleges and universities across the country to celebrate Campus Sustainability Day 2013, the theme of which is “Climate Adaptation: Resilient Campuses & Communities.”
In its 11th year, Campus Sustainability Day is designed to create awareness and facilitate discussion between students, faculty, staff and the community at large. While the day is officially observed on the fourth Wednesday in October, many institutions host activities through the week and month.
MCCC has two days of Campus Sustainability activities: Wednesday, Oct. 23 in the South Hall Cafeteria at the West Campus in Pottstown, and Wednesday, Oct. 30th in the Parkhouse Hall Atrium at the Central Campus in Blue Bell, both from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Each day will feature informational exhibits about a variety of “green” campus topics, including:
- Green Office Initiative
- Transportation Shuttle Program
- Green Lot
- Solar and Wind
- LEED Certification
- Eco-Graduation Gowns
- …and much more!
In addition to these, campus sustainability info will appear on campus television displays, and the Central Campus event will feature info from the College’s Environmental Club, as well as Campus Sustainability Tours, hosted by Assistant Professor of Biology Jerry Coleman.
The College is also asking community members to get involved by tweeting ways they are going green with the hash tag #mc3green. Responses tweeted by Nov. 1 with #mc3green will be compiled and posted to the College’s Think Green blog!
