More About Campus Sustainability Day: Since 2003, Campus Sustainability Day has been a time to reflect on the success of the sustainability movement in higher education. Together, we’re moving society forward to a sustainable future. As individual campuses we are strong, but as a movement, we are stronger still.

Campus Sustainability Day is devoted to the achievements of - and challenges for - the students, faculty, and staff who are integrating sustainability principles and practices into their institutions and surrounding communities.

Campus Sustainability Day 2012 is an effort of National Wildlife Federation, the Assocation for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), Second Nature, the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP), and other organizations.
