DENVER — The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education is excited to announce the release of its 2011 Higher Education Sustainability Review.
Informed by AASHE’s weekly e-newsletter, AASHE Bulletin, this review quantifies successes in the higher education sustainability movement and looks toward the future.
Through the lens of AASHE Bulletin stories in 2011, the review reveals skyrocketing support for green jobs training and programs; an increased focus on higher education access, affordability and success; more green building efforts than ever; and growing campus-community engagement with food security initiatives.
“AASHE is pleased to present this important publication to our members each year - and to the wider public through our e-book version. It is exciting to chart the rapid growth of the campus sustainability movement through stories and data collected in the Bulletin,” said the group’s director of resources and publications, Judy Walton. “This year we were especially pleased to see the growth in accessibility and affordability efforts, as well as green jobs training and creating food secure communities. We hope our readers enjoy the stories, interviews, case studies, synopses and trends that we've collected in this issue.”
