Get Involved with Sustainable SCU: Leading Through Laudato Si'
The Center for Sustainability and the Division of Mission and Ministry are launching "Sustainable SCU: Leading Through Laudato Si'," a year-long process to create SCU's new Sustainability Action Plan through 2030.
This journey will help set goals and strategies for building a more humane, just, and sustainable world, inspired by the Pope's encyclical Laudato Si’: On Care For Our Common Home. Our environmental justice and sustainability work for almost two decades have made this moment possible.
We want to ensure broad, inclusive, and diverse participation in this process. Please choose one of the following ways to get involved:
1. Attend an ideation session
Learn more about the Leading Through Laudato Si' initiative and share your ideas and priorities for the new Sustainability Action Plan.
2. Schedule a presentation
Campus organizations, individual classes, and student groups are invited to set up a 15-minute presentation from the Center for Sustainability during weeks 4-8. These talks cover the same content as our ideation sessions while allowing for individualized feedback and Q&A. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation.
3. Share Action Plan ideas online
Unable to attend an ideation session or presentation? Provide feedback on SCU's sustainability and justice efforts by filling out our online feedback form. The questions are the same as what we ask during the ideation sessions and presentations.
4. Join a Working Group
Faculty, staff, undergrad and graduate students, alumni, and community members are encouraged to join one of five Working Groups (Academics, Campus Engagement, Community Engagement, Energy, or Resources) that will develop the specific goals of our new Action Plan.
Members commit about 15 total hours of time over the course of the year collaborating and attending meetings. Apply to join by this Friday, October 14!
Please participate however you can in this important planning process. Your voice will help shape SCU's sustainability and environmental justice impact on campus and in the communities we belong to and engage with.
On behalf of the Center for Sustainability and the Division of Mission and Ministry, thank you for your support and consideration for this vital project.
