The Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium (NECSC) was established in October 2004 to support sustainability officers in advancing education about and demonstration of sustainable systems on university campuses in the northeast and maritime region. Organized around the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development, the NECSC members have committed to an annual meeting that advances campus sustainability by providing close networking opportunities, professional development, and access to the area’s vibrant and growing college and university sustainability practitioner community. With no formalized structure, the NECSC is a collaborative, participatory network serving sustainability professionals in higher education in the northeast region.
To be added to the NECSC google group, please contact [email protected]. The google group is to be used for idea-sharing and collaboration, facilitating calls about a particular topic, planning efforts associated with the annual meeting, and reminders of upcoming activities.
Since 2004, NECSC steering committee members have committed to hosting annual gatherings. As planning continues for the next 10 years, additional host institutions will emerge.
