Sustainability Discussion (Woo!)
Today Bennington College hosted its first campus wide sustainability discussion. Though Bennington has many environmentally focused groups on campus (the Bennington Sustainable Food Project, the Bennington Environmental Action Group and the Sustainability Committee) this is the first time there has been a large open discussion on sustainability at Bennington.
Facilitated by our President Mariko Silver, the conversation varied in subject and focus. The discussion was free-form and revolved around the question: What does sustainability mean to Bennington? This, of course, offered a broad range of discussion which students, faculty and staff all contributed to.
The discussion focused on a lot of different topics and questions such as: What should our focus extend to? The Campus? The Bennington Town? The World? There was also the question of impact: How can we measure it? How is it best achieved? What role does education play?
The talk most of all was a beginning - the beginning of a larger and longer discussion on sustainability in Bennington and hopefully the implementation of some of the amazing ideas we heard today.
