ENERGY AND WASTE TO BE FOCUS FOR SUSTAINABILITY CAMPAIGNS
MADISON, WI – The Sustainability Committee at ASM has elected to concentrate its campaign efforts for the semester toward University energy and waste use. The campaign for energy will aim to both educate students on energy usage and audit the University on energy usage, to advocate for more sustainable practices. The second campaign adopted today focused on Waste on campus, will look to increase recycling and work with other groups on education initiatives around recycling.
ASM Sustainability Committee Chair Colin Higgins said, “We are fortunate enough to be able to work on two meaningful campaigns this semester. Both of the campaigns will be very beneficial to the student body and to our community. Issues of sustainability are relevant on today’s campus and we are glad to be able to work on them.”
The committee also elected Will Mulhern as Vice-Chair and Michael Quesnell as Secretary. Quesnell worked last semester as an ASM Intern for Legislative Affairs Committee.
ASM Sustainability Committee will meet next Tuesday in room 3155 of the Student Activity Center. Please direct all further inquiries to Jesse Pollans at 847-542-9892.
