A study done in 2017 stated that 79% of students indicated sustainability was important to them before attending CU and now sustainability is 95% important to them after attending CU. These numbers prove that students care and want to improve their sustainability habits but may not know how to. Connecting students with resources and exposing them to the Environmental Center’s goals from the day one can transform our campus community in ways we may not even be able to fully imagine. Although recycling and composting is not the stand-alone solution to climate change, we hope that this presentation will help students realize how individual actions have great impacts that could change the world.
“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”
