I just returned from a very interesting conference in Zurich, the Sustainable Campus Initiative, organized by Novatlantis. One can't be more supportive of the needed leadership provided by institutions of higher learning in respect to sustainability and climate change – though I found the differences in depth and understanding of each institution represented to be quite interesting! The entire conference and the commitment among these institutions to sustainable design was very encouraging to our efforts to further bridge European expertise and U.S. leadership on the basis of measurability through The Green Bridge.
On a side note, we presented an introductory poster at the conference titled ‘Be A Bridge’. Photos of people formed these words, not random photos, but pictures of people who quickly rallied to a request for support of The Green Bridge. All photos were received within hours of our request, to me, demonstrating once again that sustainability and climate change are critical issues people are aware of and responding to REAL leadership and solutions!
