Sustainability Resources Center @SED

The School of Education’s Pickering Library recently opened the Sustainability Resources Center, a collaboration between the library and sedGreen. Individual students, faculty, staff are encouraged to check out and use the space and its facilities.

The Center, which also serves as a Green Meeting space, features a conference table, curricula, books, films, dvds with a player and monitor, Kill-o-Watt meters, and other materials that will help the University become more earth systems literate and effective when teaching how to build a healthier, sustainable planet.
