Greetings Green Seal blog readers! This is Mac Clevenger – newest member of the Green Seal family – writing from Green Seal’s headquarters in Washington, DC. Today, I’m going to talk about the Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference (affectionately known as “SSCC”) that I had the pleasure of attending and exhibiting at just last week in Baltimore with my fellow Green Seal-er, Susan Heaton. Many thanks to the University of Maryland for putting together such a wonderful two days and congratulations to SSCC on ten years!
So, what is SSCC all about you ask? Well, allow me to enlighten you. In short, SSCC concerns sustainability at our higher education institutions. Ten years ago when SSCC was first held, sustainability was still in its adolescent years. The world has come a long way since then and I cannot tell you how impressive the work that our colleges and universities are doing in order protect our planet and the beings that inhabit it.
