Welcome back Humboldt State University students! With the start of a new semester, HSU’s clubs, groups, and environmental advocates are getting back to their plans and projects to make HSU a greener school.
This semester, the Office of Sustainability is expected to complete a draft of the Climate Action Plan, a policy adopted throughout the California State University system to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020. The long awaited Food Waste Diversion Program will again give HSU the ability to compost large amounts of food and paper products from campus.
The Waste Reduction and Resource Awareness Program (WRRAP), funded and lead by students and dedicated to educating peers and reducing waste on campus, is hosting a Zero Waste Conference this October. Open to the public as well as students, this two-day event will incorporate speakers, workshops, films, tours, and performances about the concept of waste diversion, education, inclusiveness, and awareness.
The Campus Center for Appropriate Technology (CCAT) hosts a variety of workshops and classes each semester, including topics such as solar power, herbalism, green building and organic gardening.
Get involved! Visit the campus Office of Clubs and Activities for more information on other environmental clubs, groups and events, and contact us at the NEC for volunteer opportunities like Coastal Cleanup Day!
