Beyond Green

beyond greenBeyond Green celebrates that our individual actions can contribute to the vision of a sustainable SCU campus: culturally, ecologically, and economically. It is a collective statement about the importance of incorporating sustainability into our lives and work as individuals, a University, and as a society.

Sustainability is a framework for living that focuses on interconnections and requires us to act responsibly in light of them. It is more than simply being "green;" we must integrate the ideals of ecological integrity, viable economies, and social justice. The first step is recognizing that our actions affect everyone.

Joining Beyond Green encourages personal commitment to a sustainable lifestyle, empowering us to understand the implications of our daily decisions. It also encourages us to continuously ask questions and critically appraise our institutions, values, and knowledge.
