Help Us Green DKU

DKU is striving to make sustainability an institutional pillar. In this context conversations around making DKU a more sustainable campus have recently intensified. The HRC CARE and Citizenship Labs would like to invite you to participate in an event to discuss what ‘greening’ the DKU campus might mean. What does greening a campus involve? What metrics for assessing the greening of a campus should be considered? What views of socio-ecological and inter-species justice should animate the making of a green campus? 

We invite the participation of students from all student associations who are involved with environmental issues or with interspecies justice on campus. The event is also open to all members of the campus community. 

It will involve two sessions. In the first, the aim will be to create a forum for students to share their ideas about sustainability and ecological justice on campus as well as their ongoing efforts in this area.  

The second session will aim to create a working document that articulates a vision for DKU as a green and environmentally just campus, including proposals for related research projects, useful metrics, and data collection.  

Subsequent to the forum, and with the assistance of faculty, students will work on revising the document. The final document will be submitted to university leadership and ideally shape the form that DKU’s greening will take.  

Snacks and drinks will be available throughout the forum.
