There are lots of opportunities for getting involved in sustainability initiatives at UW-Stout and in the community.  And there are many ways to become more sustainable in your daily life. 

  1. Suggest a project!  Tell us what sustainability project you would like to see implemented on campus and/or in the community.  We'll add it to our list of potential projects.

  2. Work on a project!  If you're interested in working on a sustainability project, let us know.  Whether you're a student, faculty member, or staff member, we're happy to help you with a sustainability project of your choice and to connect you with others who may be able to assist you.

  3. Get involved with any of the UW-Stout student organizations focused on sustainability.  Join Greensense, Sustainable Agriculture in Education Association (SAEA)Natural Areas Club, Sustainable Construction Organization, and others.

  4. Join the Stout Student Association and become part of the SSA Sustainability Committee, which allocates Green Fee funds for sustainability projects.

  5. Go car-free and ride a bike, walk, carpool, or take the bus.  Check out alternative transportation options available at UW-Stout!

  6. If you're eating on campus, join the reusable carry-out container program, to reduce waste from carry-out meals.
