Share your ideas to help develop WSU's 2nd Generation Sustainability Plan

September 23, 2013

Wayne State University invites you to share your voice during one of three Sustainability Listening Sessions that will guide the development of WSU’s 2nd Generation Sustainability Plan.

Given the attainment of the many initiatives of the 2007 Sustainability Plan, the goal of this endeavor is to provide the campus community an opportunity to share suggestions and dialogue with others regarding future sustainability objectives.

During this process, the entire WSU campus and interested community stakeholders have three different ways to participate in the development of the university’s Sustainability Plan, including:

  • Sharing your input during one of three listening sessions;
  • Attending October’s Sustainability Symposium where results from the listening sessions and campus outreach will be presented;
  • Participating with one of the working groups that will assist in the development of the plan.

The WSU Sustainability Listening Sessions seek input regarding sustainability in the following areas:

  • Education / Research
  • Energy
  • Waste / Recycling
  • Alternative Transportation / Sustainable Transportation Related-issues
  • Food / Food Systems
  • Water / Stormwater
  • Green Building
  • Climate Change / Green House Gas Reduction

Additionally, these sessions will enliven the culture of participation among the WSU campus community in charting future initiatives on our Midtown campus.
