Waste Not, Want Not

The carbon neutrality announcement made me feel like we’ve had an actual impact

I'm proud of my role in AU carbon neutrality. As a Student Sustainability Educator, I table at events and monitor trashcans to conduct waste management. Since this process may be new to some of our students, we explain how their actions and consumption patterns on campus affect the university's waste stream.

Student Sustainability Educators work with the Office of Sustainability on programs around campus.

Life at AU

AU students are passionate, and that's definitely the case for these Green Eagles who champion sustainability efforts on campus. Find out more about how you can get involved.
