Peak Moment 149: Santa Barbara Students Lead the Way to Sustainability



Take a personal tour with members of Santa Barbara City College's Student Sustainability Coalition. They're propelling action — like bringing fresh, local organic produce daily to the salad bar, and placing recycling bins in the cafeteria. They're educating the campus all year round and especially during Sustainability Week — on the climate crisis, renewables, and campus transportation alternatives. Now their advisor, professor Adam Green, has formed a Center for Sustainability for the college campuses, curriculum and community.
