Every time I visit a Southern California college campus I leave energized and hopeful that we may someday find a way to live in a more sustainable way. As a UCI alumni I visit that campus the most but I've also visited several other campuses over the past year and the sustainability vibe is very strong at every one of them. I mentioned to some colleagues that its near impossible to go 15 minutes on any Southern California Campus and not hear someone mentioning sustainability. Its clear that these students love thinking about innovation around sustainability. That's also the reason why they love Fit for Green!
Part of our efforts this year will be directed to working closer with these students. We'll likely focus on the 4 year college campuses in Southern California and time permitting we'd also like to start visiting some of the 2 year colleges and even High Schools in our area. We'll start by working more with some of the student sustainability organizations that we've been following on Facebook. So far this year we have one Hackathon and one Sustainability Symposium with more of these events on the horizon!
