We can all be a catalyst for change!

A group of young people – ages 11 to 15 – filed a petition last year to the Washington Department of Ecology (DOE) requesting they do more to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. This past week the King County Superior Court ordered DOE to consider the petition which they initially rejected. The hope is that this petition, and the ruling by the court, will get the state to start regulating carbon emissions.

If these teens can successfully challenge Washington State to rethink their rules and regulations, imagine what YOU can do with a sustainability degree from Cascadia.

Whether you are promoting soil amendments created with solids extracted from the wastewater treatment process or improving the energy efficiency of local affordable housing programs, you can make positive changes that will have lasting impacts which literally span the globe.
