Binghamton University Office of Sustainability
Sustainability is one of Binghamton University's top priorities. The University is committed to sustainable practices, as represented by its campus landscape, built environment, curriculum offerings, and the myriad of clubs and organizations around the theme. We're working to help restore the global ecosystem, foster healthy living, and reduce our impact on the environment. Check out what Binghamton University’s Office of Sustainability is doing to help fight climate change on our campus.
The Sustainability Hub is a physical and virtual space that seeks to foster collaboration, cultivate connection, and bolster engagement for all things sustainability-related on campus. The Hub hosts events, creates programming, provides access to curated information and resources, highlights the work being done by faculty, students, staff, and local community members, and looks to support any additional sustainability efforts taking place within the campus community.
Environmental CHANGE (Collective Health Advocates and a Natural Green Economy)
Environmental CHANGE (Collective Health Advocates and a Natural Green Economy) is a group of students with a shared interest in the linkages between the environment and human health who are focused on cultivating community and weaving environmental, health, biology, and economic fields of study to build a more sustainable and resilient future. We serve as a forum for discussion and a source of information on environmental issues in hopes of spreading awareness and training Binghamton students to become advocates for these issues.
Members can be a part of educational and social activities, engage in broader community awareness-raising events, provide opportunities for advocacy through collaboration and more! With Environmental CHANGE, students can take more action regarding their passion and learn various perspectives that allow them to take a change but also help encourage it in others.
