What is Sustainable Clark? It’s you. It’s me. It’s every one of us. We are all able to make a difference in the world — everything you do, every day, matters.
The mission of Sustainable Clark’s Office of Sustainability is to cultivate a greener campus by facilitating collaboration among students, faculty, administrative departments, and staff. We offer resources to recognize system failures and help innovate solutions; empower the Clark community to collaborate on creating campus-based solutions and programs and to serve as an integral partner in their implementation; and strive to build community awareness around social, economic, and environmental issues. We make change happen. The campus is a learning laboratory; constructive ideas are welcome and viable projects are supported. With more than 130 courses addressing issues of sustainability and more than 10 sustainability-oriented student organizations, Sustainable Clark is fully engaged in proactive sustainability, on and off campus.
Sustainable Clark is invested in climate justice, environmental justice and equity. We recognize that the impacts of environmental degradation and climate change disproportionately affect marginalized and vulnerable communities. We know that the struggle for racial justice, disability justice, gender equality, LGBTQ+ rights, and all other forms of oppression are deeply intertwined with the fight against climate change. Climate change is without a doubt an equity and public health issue. We are committed to supporting the resources of our own community at Clark – among them knowledge, research, innovation and creativity – in the work of re-balancing injustice in our own neighborhood and across the globe to support resilient, healthy communities that thrive in concert with nature.
