Macalester College Sustainability Planning Workshop

The Macalester College Sustainability Advisory Committee is celebrating ten years of campus sustainability leadership! The College has ambitious environmental goals, including Climate Neutrality by 2025 and Zero Waste by 2020.

Committee members prioritize potential actions

Macalester College engaged Elizabeth to facilitate a one-day retreat with the Committee. Through design thinking activities and conversation, they worked to assess current conditions and prioritize actions the Committee can take in the next three years that will have the highest impact in advancing their goals. The workshop was an opportunity to reflect on the interconnected systems that affect campus sustainability and experience the creative synergy that can lead to productive outcomes through a well-facilitated gathering of smart and passionate people.
