The Office of Sustainability and PowerSave interns are pleased to bring you the following events celebrating WKU’s participation in the Campus Conservation Nationals, and regional Bluegrass Unplugged competition.
The Campus Conservation Nationals is a nationwide electricity and water use reduction competition among colleges and universities created by The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and in partnership with Lucid, Alliance to Save Energy and the National Wildlife Federation. See our press release here.
Please share these opportunities with your students. Note that each event is free, open to all, and “swipe-able”. Additionally, PowerSave Interns are available to visit your classrooms to talk about energy conservation, how WKU is working to be energy responsible, or to conduct energy audits! Simply contact me to schedule.
