Campus as Living Lab: Experiments in Re-Vitalizing Education and Building Performance (11/7/13)



Community Colleges as Student Sustainability Living Laboratories: In partnership with the Security and Sustainability Forum (9/10/13)

As higher education institutions redesign and retrofit campuses in greener ways, many forward-thinking schools are using these projects as hands-on learning opportunities for students. These "living laboratories" merge academics and campus facilities management to provide students with real-world skills and, for the institution, a path to meet its sustainability goals. Community colleges, in particular, are leading the way, as they use living labs as a tool to completely revitalize education. Co produced by the SEED Center and the National Council on Science and the Environment.
