Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference 2014
The sharing economy: no place is this more evident than on our campuses. Students are rethinking vehicle ownership, swapping clothes, trading books, and participating in MOOCs. In other words, finding ways to make their limited funds go further. Campuses must also find opportunities to conserve limited resources, make college more affordable, and make our communities more resilient to economic and environmental change. A sharing economy is leading to more sustainable consumption, operations, services, and lifestyles in our communities and on our campuses. Come share with us.
Smart and Sustainable 2014 (SSCC) provides the time and space for dialogue on experiences and challenges in an open and collaborative environment. We have moved beyond show-and-tell presentations towards skill building, rich discussions and deep dives into the challenges and solutions facing our institutions.
