To celebrate Earth week last month, the Center for Applied Research on the Environment and Sustainability (CARES) held a booth in the plaza where they had various activities including painting, trivia in collaboration with The Gaia Movement, and pepper planting from their hydroponics system on display. Based on the reports issued by The Office of Sustainability ( mainly the Carbon Footprint Report, Sustainability Report, and the Green Guide Brochure), the Office of Marketing Communication and Public Affairs has launched a campaign on campus tripods covering two themes: Sustainable AUC by the numbers 2021 and What we can do at AUC to protect the environment? Samples of the campaign are displayed below!

With the end of the semester approaching, the Office of Sustainability would like to wish you good luck on your finals and happy summer. Don't forget to stay sustainable this summer! 
Construction engineering graduating senior Mohamed Nabhan is one of the most committed students to sustainable practices. Nabhan has been collecting most of his papers, which are mainly generated from his courses, and he brings them to  The Office of Sustainability to ensure they will efficiently get recycled. He has been also collecting his papers during the time period the university shifted to remote learning "because I believe that these small actions have an impact", said Nabhan. In addition, Nabhan is a professional volleyball athlete; besides, he was a work-study student at The Office of Sustainability for two years.
