NAU Climate Action Plan - Survey
Hello! Thank you for participating in the NAU Climate Action Planning process.
This survey will take 4-7 minutes of your time. We'd like to first provide you with some initial information below.
What is a Climate Action Plan?
A Climate Action Plan serves as a strategic document that helps guide a community towards a common stewardship goal. A majority of university Climate Action Plans focus on lessening consumption, carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable institution. NAU is a leader in higher education for sustainability and a founding signee of the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) and the Second Nature Carbon Pledge in 2007.
Why do we need a Climate Action Plan?
Large scale plans like this are communication tools to share a vision and outline future community actions. Similar to a campus Master Plan, a Climate Action Plan can inform discretionary decision-making regarding the strategic direction of the university. As sustainability-related and environmental science degree programs continue to grow in relevance and demand across the nation, and at NAU in particular, it is a strategic development to institute a Climate Action Plan to reach university and community goals (i.e. carbon neutrality, stewardship, student job skills, etc.)
It is essential for the campus community to have a road-map for sustainability to further the Living Laboratory ideal, which is a concept to define how research, campus needs and student learning can come together to foster an active learning community.
Why this survey?
We are in the initial stages of our climate action planning process and we want to make sure we are reflecting the needs of our campus. We are focusing on community engagement in the Fall 2019 to ensure that we create a plan that reflects our current needs from our greater campus community. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and goals. You are helping to shape the future of NAU's climate legacy!
