Campus Sustainability Month is celebrated in October by many Universities around the world including The American University in Cairo; the purpose of the month is to encourage those in higher education to alternate to more sustainable habits. The Office of Sustainability has planned for multiple events to celebrate this month to engage and inspire the AUC community toward being sustainable. Check out below the plan for Campus Sustainability Month and mark your calendars for these events!
AUC joined the Race to Zero campaign, a UN-backed global initiative aimed at achieving a zero-carbon world. The University has pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
On the 22nd of September,  the Office of Sustainability in Collaboration with the Student Union celebrated world Car-Free day by handing out giveaways to Carpoolers and providing prioritized parking next to the Pepsi entrance all morning!
