With the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment taking steps towards achieving climate neutrality, the higher education community is staged to play an active role in affecting change towards a more sustainable future. Students, staff, and faculty alike have the power to implement new initiatives on their campus.

Student engagement is critical if we are to move towards an environmentally sustainable and a socially just future. This session will address best practices for administrators on college campuses to encourage and support student involvement around sustainability initiativies in their campuses, community, and political arena, as well as explore some opportunities in 2009 for students that advisors should know about. As the campus field coordinator for the National Wildlife Federation's Campus Ecology Program, Praween Dayananda supports campuses in their efforts to take on the global warming challenge and model sustainable communities, and he has helped organize youth climate conferences.
