Track: Pioneering Practices
Topic: Introducing the Sustainable Campus of Tomorrow… TODAY
Description: Institutions have been among the first to embrace sustainable solutions in their buildings because of the long-term, cost efficiencies that can be achieved. But what other types of sustainable solutions are available to campus planners? In addition to high performance buildings, there are high performance sites, bicycle and pedestrian corridors that can reduce the amount of vehicles on campus and programs that are being developed by the campuses themselves. These other sustainable solutions can improve air quality, reduce maintenance, and provide educational opportunities as well. Objectives of this session include: To educate the attendee in the many forms that sustainable planning and design can take; The panel will use case studies to illustrate the points being made; To engage the attendees in thinking more sustainably for future project; and To illustrate that all of the varied forms of sustainable planning and design work together to enhance the user experience.
