Sustainability can be defined many ways but the basic ideas and concepts remain the same: balancing protection for the environment, economic factors, and social responsibility, so that together we create and safeguard an improved quality of life for ourselves and future generations.
Events can have a large environmental impact, so the Office of Sustainability is encouraging the community to make events more sustainable through considering factors such as waste management, accessibility and reducing or eliminating their carbon footprint.
