Ideas for Students

How can college students improve sustainability at their schools? What can high school students do?

All Students

  • Get connected with larger climate/sustainability networks such as the Campus Climate Challenge.
  • Join a sustainability-related student group on campus or start one of your own.
  • Apply to serve on a campus sustainability committee or help create a new committee.

 

High School Students

  • Use the Report Card to consider sustainability factors as you decide where to go to college.
  • Ask the colleges to which you're considering applying about their current sustainability initiatives and plans for the future.

 

College Students

  • Apply to the United Nations Foundation's Climate Crews program to receive training on creating innovative sustainability initiatives.
  • Organize events to discuss various aspects of college sustainability.
  • Invite national sustainability leaders to speak on campus.
  • Attend relevant conferences 
  • Encourage your president to sign the Presidents Climate Commitment and/or Talloires Declaration.
  • Choose to reside in your school's green dorm, if one exists. If not, ask your school to explore the possibility of creating a green dorm.
