Goddard Sustainability Progress Report - July 2014

Background

The sustainability team was formed in 2007 when Goddard’s then president Marc Schulman signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment. We conducted a carbon inventory, created a climate action plan, and began working to reduce emissions. Our goal is to be carbon neutral in fuels burned on campus and electricity usage by 2020. At the same time, we are working to increase energy efficiency, reduce consumption and waste, and integrate sustainability into all aspects of college activities.

An Ecovillage Leader

Cynthia Tina (BAS ‘15) lives in an ecovillage in Massachusetts and is exploring ecovillages as physical expressions of the worldview of the “interconnection” that we need to experience in order to move beyond the separation that characterizes many mainstream lives. She feels that this shift in consciousness is at the heart of creating change in the world.

The "Why" of Tiny

Meet Mariah Coz (BAS ‘14), left. She lives in a renovated 1960s off-grid trailer she named "The COMET" (Cost-effective, Off-grid Mobile Eco Trailer) while she pursues her studies in Tiny Houses in relation to the environment, the economy, and sustainable principles.

Mariah is also exploring the space outside of a tiny house - small, intensive, high-density food and energy production landscapes, and Tiny House community models.
