The Problem this Project Addresses
Opportunity for Sustainability Practitioners
This free, nonprofit website from the Higher Education Associations’ Sustainability Consortium will help practitioners within higher education, government, non-profit and business organizations get the students and volunteers they need to help (locally or virtually) with research, implementation, project management, and evaluation. This site will save practitioners many hours that it would normally take to recruit students or volunteers at multiple, cumbersome websites—if they can find them, at all.
Opportunity for Students
At the same time, it provides students with exciting hands-on opportunities to develop their real-world problem solving and sustainability skills, enhance their resumes, and make a difference as they work on projects for their thesis, independent study, capstone, course assignments and co-curricular activities.
The Impact of this Project
We will enhance the effectiveness of researchers and practitioners, while also improving academic outcomes for students.
