At Stanford, leadership in sustainability extends to all aspects of campus life—including events and event planning. Whether you join us for a sustainability tour, attend a conference on campus, or participate in a departmental meeting, you will witness the Stanford community maximizing resources, reducing waste, and offering an example of environmental stewardship.

Celebrating Sustainability at Stanford

This Earth Day, join us as we Celebrate Sustainability! On Tuesday, April 22 from 11am to 2pm, join faculty, staff, and students in Science and Engineering Quad as we celebrate sustainability at Stanford. This year's "Celebrating Sustainability" event will be an interactive festival designed to educate members of the campus community about Stanford's sustainability achievements through fun, engaging activities and displays.

Keys to Sustainability

Our annual student sustainability welcome reception was held on February 7, 2014 in the West Oak Lounge of Tresidder Memorial Union. Nearly 20 campus partners came together to introduce students to the multitude of ways they can explore sustainability on campus and beyond. Keys to Sustainability featured guest speaker Richard Nevle, giveaways, and information on sustainability-related student groups, grants, internships, majors, departments, and research opportunities.

Green Event Planning Guidelines

Implementing green practices at large campus events, such as conferences and ceremonies, as well as small events, such as meetings and dinners, demonstrates a pervasive commitment to sustainability. The university's Greening Events at Stanford booklet helps groups plan and execute a more environmentally sustainable event. Sections provide education on food choices and catering, zero waste, communication, transportation, and post-event considerations specific to Stanford. A master checklist provides a comprehensive resource for all event organizers.
