Students Gather To Promote Sustainability Ideas

Students from Duquesne University, Carnegie Mellon University and The University of Pittsburgh joined together to present at a local sustainability symposium today. The students worked to develop practical city and campus wide policies and habits to help reduce Pittsburgh's environmental footprint. Some of the ideas presented at the One Step At A Time Student Sustainability Symposium were the powering down of computer systems by universities during off-peak hours and establishing city-wide green building standards.
