The President’s Climate Commitment represents a public effort on the part of the participating institution to reach carbon neutrality within a time frame developed by the institution. There are over 600 participating institutions from all over the United States. The Bennington College Sustainability Committee has been working towards this goal for some time, and this is a very significant milestone in the school’s efforts towards sustainability.
The signing is to happen at 5:15 PM tomorrow (Oct 11) in CAPA Lounge, with the Richard Heinberg lecture to follow. This is an extremely exciting event, and a strong student turnout would be excellent!
