The Climate Action kick-off event featured exhibits telling Penn's sustainability story with information on research and teaching, energy, recycling and waste management, as well as transportation and our physical environment. It also provided students with information about green courses available to them. Held at Houston Hall, it was a terrific opportunity for Penn to highlight the important steps that we will take in the future to reduce our environmental footprint, share in the pride of our accomplishments, and to learn more about what we can all do to advance this critical initiative.
