WWU's Sustainable Communities Partnership to host student showcase June 7

The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) program has supported meaningful connections between Western's faculty, staff, and students, and community partners throughout the north Puget Sound region for the past several years. These connections have led to numerous projects that make communities more resilient to climate change and more connected to one another. We want to celebrate these incredible efforts with you all! 

We also know that great community-engaged work is happening beyond SCP, around Western's campus and within communities in the region. Please join us in celebrating all of this great work at a special celebration on Wednesday, June 7 from 4-5:30 p.m. Food and drinks will be provided. RSVP is not required, but RSVPing is helpful for food planning purposes. RSVP by following this link. All are welcome, so please share with your students, colleagues, and friends!

Students will also have the opportunity to showcase their community-centered recent projects during the event. We hope for the showcase to be informal and can include existing materials such as posters, maps, flyers, slides, or any other medium of their choosing. Recent student projects include a review of air quality issues in eastern Whatcom County, assessment of wildfire risk in the wildland-urban interface within the City of Bellingham, and research and recommendations for climate-related actions in comprehensive plans in small towns/cities in Whatcom County, Skagit County, and the Methow Valley.

We encourage people to use this opportunity to network with community partners for future projects, jobs, internships, or volunteer opportunities. Please join us!
