Watch Cal Poly Pomona join the movement in becoming a green campus. An entertaining and informative new video shows how the university is taking stand against global warming by addressing its own impact on the environment.
Produced by I&IT Learning, the video highlights the many green efforts on campus, such as recycling, switching to compact fluorescent light bulbs and encouraging public transportation.
The video, which is available on YouTube and on I&IT's website, will be entered into a competition hosted by the American College & University President Climate Commitment. The competition asks campuses participating in the commitment to creatively communicate in a short video how they are reducing greenhouse gases.
Five entries will be selected and screened at the 2008 conference of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) on Nov. 10. They will also be posted on the Climate Commitment and AASHE websites, as well as Go Green Tube, a video sharing website focused on social and green initiatives.
After an introduction by President Ortiz, the video quickly launches into the university's push to increase recycling on campus, switch to compact fluorescent light bulbs, promote public transportation and encourage more people to bike and walk to campus. The Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies is also highlighted for its efforts in finding new and innovative solutions for a sustainable future.
