Campus Sustainability Month

October is Campus Sustainability Month, and ASU is celebrating by engaging and inspiring Sun Devils through campus activities, events and experiences. 

The goal of Campus Sustainability Month is to raise awareness and personal action in creating sustainable ASU campuses. Each October, many groups around the university mobilize Sun Devils and volunteers to deepen individual and campus engagement around sustainability. 

Sun Devils can learn about ASU's sustainability goals and how they can take sustainable action when they participate in one of the many events occurring this month. 

Campus Sustainability Month serves as a complement to Earth Month in April and focuses on local action on college campuses to create a sustainable future.
