Cities around the word are reducing greenhouse gas emissions and offering innovative solutions for stemming climate change: at Macalester College, our urban location offers us an opportunity to use our urban location as a sustainability teaching tool.
The Sustainability Office is looking at ways to help interested students, faculty, and staff use the campus and community as an urban sustainability Living Laboratory.
