On December 4, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., PSU students, faculty and staff are invited to a "Climate Action Plan Town Hall."
Portland State University is one of more than 660 signatories to the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). A major component of this commitment is to develop and submit a campus-wide plan for achieving climate neutrality.
At this event, goals and a draft of the climate action plan will be presented, along with opportunities to discuss and further develop the plan. Areas to be discussed include campus energy and materials, transportation, teaching and research, and partnerships.
