The Sustainability Club
The Department of Geographical Sciences' sustainability club, otherwise known as the Geography Sustainability Task Force (GSTF), seeks to improve the efficiency of our consumption and improve working conditions while at the same time reducing our environmental footprint. We have made small strides such as changing paper usage and reducing power consumption in computer labs, but continue to work on large issues of departmental and building-wide lighting, water, and waste. Through increased education, awareness, and involvement we look forward to big changes in 2012 and beyond. The GSTF has, and continues to, consult and work with the University of Maryland Office of Sustainability (www.sustainability.umd.edu). Future meetings will be posted here and announced through internal departmental emails.
