Recapping AASHE 2008: Sustainbility on Campus and Beyond

We had a great time at this year’s AASHE conference, and hope you did as well. The general feeling was one of determination, as members of universities and colleges from all over North America shared ways to make the campus a better model for resilient, sustainable living and extend those strategies beyond the campus borders.

In case you missed it (or in case you went into overload and threw your notes in the compost pile!), here are a few highlights from our own blog, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and other campus sustainability professionals:
