Organizations Collaborate to Advance Sustainability in Higher Ed

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF), U.S. Green Building Council, (USGBC), Second Nature, and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) recently unveiled a shared vision to advance sustainability by working more closely together for the benefit of higher education institutions. Their vision is that: 
By 2025, 20 million graduates across all majors will be global sustainability citizens: learning about relationships between natural, physical, economic, social, and cultural systems; understanding how their personal and professional choices impact these systems; and having the agency to create solutions that allow people and the environment to thrive
