UNLV and sustainability

By Jeanne Brown on February 23, 2007 9:35 AM | Permalink
As mentioned in my last posting, the Architecture Studies Library hosted a panel discussion following the global emergency teach-in on Tuesday. Speakers challenged the attendees to join the current green efforts on the UNLV campus, and to go beyond. Alfredo Fernandez-Gonzalez of the School of Architecture and the Natural Energies Advanced Technologies Lab challenged the campus to calculate an ecological footprint by the end of 2007. Unless we know where we are currently, how can we document improvement? He also suggested that a task force be formed to develop a strategy to reduce UNLV's greenhouse gas emitting energy consumption by 50% within three years. David Hassenzahl, Chair of the UNLV Environmental Studies Department, posed three challenges: UNLV to become a leader in creating a sustainable campus; the faculty senate advocate offsetting the environmental impact of all UNLV travel; and a sustainability coordinator be appointed for UNLV. Many campuses are considering the same type of issues. Here are some web sites mentioned during the panel, for further reading on campus initiatives.
