THINK GLOBAL/ACT LOCAL PROJECTS
Since Fall 2009, over 1,350 students in the Global Sustainability foundation course have completed Think Global/Act Local Projects. Each semester student teams collaborate with diverse community partners to implement meaningful research service learning projects in the community.
See the partners page for more information.
The goal of this project is to research some of the most well known up-and-coming sustainability building techniques, LEED, Passive House, EarthCraft, and Energy Star, in order to assess whether they would be beneficial for the Albemarle Housing Improvement Program (AHIP) to incorporate into their business plan.View
