Everyone in college is looking for a way to get more involved on their campus and support a cause they believe in. Campus Ecology is a widely growing program that allows colleges and universities across the country to be connected directly to the National Wildlife Program and help them go green!
A little bit of History and Background on the Program…
- The National Wildlife Federation has been working with colleges and universities nearly 20 years with our Campus Ecology program to improve each school’s overall green educational programming and onsite sustainability. We have student outreach programs, campus consulting, climate action competition, and educational events and resources reach about 1,000 campuses each year.
What does the Campus Ecology Program do?
- Campus Ecology is equipped with the talented staff and resources to help students, faculty and staff with the crucial work on campus. Whether it’s introducing recycling or forging ahead with green construction, Campus Ecology will be a partner. And anyone–individual faculty, staff and students or campus teams–can join. Campus Ecology has spent two decades building a library of resources, programs, incentives, and networking opportunities aimed at sharing lessons learned. Scientific evidence of a growing climate crisis has prompted environmentalists everywhere to refocus. In response, we’ve evolved, too. Campus greening is still at the heart of what we do, but with a renewed purpose–encouraging campuses to make reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases the goal of greening efforts.
