Voting now open to name SUNY Sullivan as climate leader


LOCH SHELDRAKE, NY — SUNY Sullivan is a finalist in the 2014 Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards annual competition. Voting is now open to name the college as the most innovative climate leader in higher education. Voters can go to www.planetforward.org/idea/suny-sullivan-our-living-laboratory. After viewing SUNY Sullivan’s video, voters should click on the box “Do you think this helps move the planet forward?” Voters are able to view the video and vote daily through April 15.

SUNY Sullivan has established its reputation as an institution dedicated to sustainability by incorporating such practices into both its curricula and its campus operations. The college’s director of sustainability, Helena le Roux, refers to the campus as a “living laboratory,” where students learn about the issues and prepare for careers in the field, and can interact in an environment where sustainability is a defining characteristic of the culture.
