Time Magazine 9/6/07-"Green Acres": Article on EcoVillage:
Written by Ithacan Bryan Walsh, this profile of EcoVillage describes the community's physical and social design. Information is included about EcoVillage's agriculture, its inhabitants, its commitment to green living, and similarities to other communities worldwide. Is it a commune?

The Ladybug Vanishes
Student Todd Ashley and professor Jason Hamilton are featured in an article called "In search of the nine-spotted ladybug" in the July 28, 2007 Ithaca Journal. Written by Emily Shields, the article focuses on two professors, a group of dedicated volunteers, and an investigation into the mystery of the shrinking population of certain ladybugs in this area. The nine-spotted ladybug was once the New York state insect, but is now so rare that in the last 14 years, only one has been found and photographed in the United States. Why? To learn more, check out the Ithaca Journal archives.
Fighting Waste = Fighting Hunger
When Ithaca College Community Service & Leadership coordinator Deb Mohlenhoff was noted in the November 12, 2007 Ithaca Journal, ESP student Paige Davis was in the picture. Students are collaborating on salvaging food that would normally be wasted; they package it and transport it to the Freeville Food Pantry. Find the article from the online Ithaca Journal.
AASHE Releases Annual Review of Sustainability in Higher Education
A new report produced by AASHE - the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education - shows an explosion of activity around sustainability on campuses across the US and Canada. AASHE Digest 2006 offers a comprehensive review of campus sustainability efforts from the past year.
The report includes over 600 stories about higher education institutions leading the way to a sustainable future. It is organized into 8 chapters covering: 1) institutional change, 2) education and outreach, 3) social responsibility, 4) green building, 5) energy management and renewable energy, 6) food and agriculture, 7) transportation, and 8) waste, water, landscaping, and procurement.
"The incredible variety of sustainability activities underway on campuses is a sign of a healthy movement," said Tom Kimmerer, AASHE's Executive Director. "If the first two months of 2007 are any indication, we are heading for another vigorous year."
The Digest offers ample evidence of a broadening and deepening of campus sustainability efforts, with more institutions of all types getting involved and campuses undertaking more significant measures than ever before to improve their sustainability performance. Of particular note is the fact that the combined green power purchases of the Top 10 higher education purchasers tripled in 2006.
Digest stories also show growing support for sustainability by the higher education associations. An entire track was devoted to sustainability at the "Campus of the Future" conference hosted by APPA, NACUBO and SCUP. Several associations have even formed a network called the Higher Education Associations Sustainability Consortium (HEASC) to advance sustainability within their programming and operations.
In 2006, higher education media also acknowledged the growing interest in sustainability, with the Chronicle of Higher Education and University Business each devoting a special issue to the topic.
AASHE's own growth over the past year mirrors the trends highlighted in the report. By the end of the year, membership in AASHE had more than quintupled since the beginning of the year. In addition, AASHE's inaugural conference held in October 2006 was the largest campus sustainability gathering to date, attracting nearly 700 participants.
AASHE Digest 2006 is made possible with the generous support of AASHE business partners Mithun, Powersmiths, and PortionPac.
The AASHE Digest is an annual compilation of news stories and resources from AASHE's weekly newsletter, the AASHE Bulletin.
