“Envisioning Environment at UVM” – Announcing Public Forums

 

The Envisioning Environment committee has prepared preliminary plans for conducting a campus-wide inventory of environmentally-engaged outreach, research, and education. This inventory will be developed through several formats, with information to be collected and posted on the provost’s web site for public access.  These formats include:

Refill Station for all the basics!

I think it would be a fantastic idea to set up a refill station, perhaps in the Davis Center.  At such a station, students (and teachers / whoever!) would bring their own containers to refill on things like laundry detergent, soap, sunscreen, shampoo, conditioner, cleaners and other houshold items.

Developing a Campus Sustainability Map

The UVM Office of Sustainability is taking lead on an exciting new project to develop and launch an interactive map of sustainability on campus. This builds on inspirational examples of campus sustainability maps elsewhere at places such as University of Michigan and Ball State University.

Permaculture on Campus

Permaculture is a regenerative strategy that restores ecosystem health through sustanable and mindful design. Large green areas on campus should be used to create native, edible landscapes that will supply dining services and students with a local and organic food source. This will reduce our reliance on fuel for food transportation, serve as an educational medium, and involve the UVM community with the source of the food they consume.  Compost from campus facilities could be kept on campus and be used to build and maintain soil health for the permaculture plots.
