They Say They Want a Revolution
Ramaswami, Rama
Campus Technology, v22 n2 p38-40, 43-44, 46-47 Oct 2008
Even if one does not believe--and it is getting increasingly difficult not to--that the "green revolution" on college campuses is akin to the great movements for social change that rocked universities in the 1960s and '70s, there is no denying that it has taken root in such a way that no campus administrator can afford to ignore it. And unlike the flower children of yesteryear, today's students are pragmatists: Their environmental activism is actually spearheading what many social scientists and business leaders herald as the next major grassroots movement to effect social change. In fact, educators emphasize that green technologies are exceptionally suited to an academic environment, since they offer a major opportunity to teach students how eco-friendly principles apply to daily life. In this article, the author describes several new campus facilities that have been designed using green construction and technology.
