The University of Washington is among four finalists in the “Environmental March Madness Tournament,” and in the running to be named the national environmental-excellence champion April 9.
“Our track record in researching and teaching about environmentally sound and sustainable practices and incorporating them into the lives and behaviors of our students is impeccable,” said UW President Michael K. Young. “We are very mindful and self-conscious about the importance of educating the generation that will be taking over from us and – we hope and trust – doing a better job of it. The planet demands it.”
For the challenge, the UW submitted images on Facebook, short essays and YouTube videos documenting environmental and sustainability efforts.
