Blue Sky Brainstorm: Envisioning Sustainability for the Five Colleges and Beyond

In December 2011, the Five College Board of Directors invited suggestions, ideas, or fully developed proposals for new and improved sustainability initiatives.

Over 500 proposals were received.  The proposals are now under review with key criteria being reduced climate impact, savings, and learning opportunities for our students, added wtih consideration given to those projects that might attract external funding or engage alumni/ae and members of our neighboring communities.

Eighteen projects have been selected as semifinalists for the first round of projects that might be adopted.
