Colleges Celebrate Sustainability, aka Redressing "Maldistribution"

Ashley Thorne

Today is the seventh annual Campus Sustainability Day (CSD), a celebration invented by the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP), in collaboration with Second Nature. Second Nature, remember, considers sustainability a tool to redress “past, present, and future maldistribution of resources, privileges and rights of endangered communities, of poor people, and of communities of color.” It believes that the university is the best place to foster sustainability advocacy, and that “The myth of the value-free university, that knowledge is attained for its own sake, stands in contrast to the reality that special interests always play a greater or lesser role.” As we speak, SCUP is streaming a live webcast on “Sustainability Strategies for Vibrant Campus Communities” to colleges that paid the $195 registration fee.
