We all want a better environment. No matter if you are an environmentalist, conservationist or someone who loves to keep Bowling Green beautiful. The Office of Sustainability at WKU will be at WKU’s Earth Day Celebration tomorrow on Friday April 22 from 11-4.
This year our theme is “One Planet Day” (One Planet Living is a vision of a sustainable world where people lead healthy, happy lives within their fair share of the earth’s resources). The One Planet Living framework focuses on ten areas that comprehensively address the environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainability.
1 Zero Carbon 6 Sustainable Water
2 Zero Waste 7 Land Use and Wildlife
3 Sustainable Transport 8 Culture and Heritage
4 Sustainable Materials 9 Equity and Local Economy
5 Local and Sustainable Food 10 Health and Happiness
