Hampshire Is Going 100% Solar for Electricity

Climate Action Plan

Hampshire is part of the the American College and University Presidents' Climate Commitment, which requires us to develop a comprehensive plan for reducing emissions. Last fall, President Lash asked the Campus Environmental Committee to work with Hampshire Alum David Adamian and his firm Greener U to develop a plan.

They have developed a clear and concrete set of proposed actions to:

1. Make the campus climate neutral by 2022;
2. Involve students extensively in the process to use the greening of our buildings and operations as a learning opportunity.

The plan will shape the future of the campus and it is important for members of the community to read it and comment.
