To accelerate climate leadership on and off campus, National Wildlife Federation’s Campus Ecology program is helping to build and strengthen Campus Sustainability and Climate Networks across the country. For over two decades Campus Ecology’s tools, training, and expertise have empowered students, staff, and faculty to implement conservation and environmental education initiatives on hundreds of campuses nationwide. As higher education continues to embrace sustainability in operations, curricula, and community relations, interactive networks are playing a valuable role in helping colleges and universities:
- learn from each other, reducing the need to "reinvent the wheel" when it comes to campus sustainability;
- prepare students for green and sustainable careers;
- conserve energy, water, and natural resources, while also reducing operating costs;
- implement the American Colleges and Universities President's Climate Commitment (ACUPCC);
- promote clean energy solutions and sustainability in their communities.
Campus Ecology will continue to be at the forefront of the sustainability movement by supporting networks that promote collaborative leadership in tackling our climate and energy challenges. Follow the links below to learn more about campus networks in the regions where we work:
