Sustainability Forum WinnersDo you remember last year’s Carpool Week? Do you remember the Green Gorillas, a taskforce of students who sorted through waste to measure the viability of composting? What about the campus’ Hydration Stations, where you can fill up your water bottle multiple times per day?

For the past three years, students have led sustainable projects on campus, creating a more sustainable culture and environment here at Skyline College. All of these projects have started with an idea to improve campus sustainability. After the idea starts to grow, students start working on their grant proposals with the assistance of faculty mentors and the Sustainability Coordinator. After the proposals are submitted and approved, the students have the opportunity to present their projects to the rest of the student body. All students can participate and vote for the proposal that they want to see on campus.

This year, the Student Sustainability Summit Forum will convene on Tuesday, December 1. Students will gather in Pacific Heights, Building 19, Room 129 from 12:30 p.m.-2:00 p.m. for an exciting afternoon of brainstorming and sharing perspectives. Not to mention, pizza will be served!

If you have any questions about the Student Sustainability Summit or would like to RSVP to the Forum, please email Allison Callow at
