Rio's Participation


Part of “thinking green” and beyond means joining with other organizations striving to make a difference.

It is making sustainable efforts a part of your life and your daily routine.

April 2009:  America's Greenest Campus (AGC) is the first nationwide contest among colleges to reduce the carbon footprints of their students, faculty, alumni and staff. Using advanced carbon tracking and reduction software from Climate Culture, America's Greenest Campus tracks the participation and carbon reductions from campuses across the country.

Partnered with Focus the Nation and the National Wildlife Federation and hosted "The 2% Solution" Web cast

Focus the Nation is an educational initiative on global warming solutions that occurred at more than 1,000 universities and in all 50 states. The Web cast featured audience-based discussion of solutions for decreasing global warming pollution in developed countries by 2% every year for the next decade and beyond.

Education for Global Warming Initiatives creates opportunities for person-to-person dialogue about climate solutions, and fosters education and action networks. The organization's mission is to stop global warming by promoting a clean energy future for America.

Rio Salado is proud to participate in this initiative, which will help prepare millions of students to become leaders in finding viable solutions to the challenge of global warming.
