Learning Sustainability

Learning Sustainability at Penn

The 2009 Climate Action Plan set a goal to make climate change and sustainability part of the curriculum and educational experience available to all Penn students. Since that time, the Penn Sustainability Office has initiated new programs, collaborated with the Office of the Provost, and expanded opportunities for research and internships all with a primary focus on students. Climate Action Plan 2.0 expands upon this goal by putting forth recommendations to enrich sustainability resources and opportunities for the larger Penn community, with a particular focus on faculty support. Between 2014 and 2019, the intention is for student sustainability programs to continue to grow, complemented by an equally rich portfolio of programs for faculty.
