Final Presentations from ENV 327: Investigating an Ethos of Sustainability at Princeton

June 25, 2020

This past spring, students in Dr. Shana Weber’s seminar, ENV 327: Investigating an Ethos of Sustainability at Princeton, engaged with faculty and staff of diverse expertise to examine global sustainability issues and how they manifest locally on the Princeton campus. For the final assignment, students were presented with real-time decision-making needs at Princeton, and given an opportunity to influence those decisions via evidence-based proposals designed to be repeatable and scalable.
