Come take a walk into the future of your hometown.

Ithaca College Students for Sustainability have developed a walking map of the United States, displaying the consequences of unsustainable practices and the impacts of uncontrolled pollution on various regions of the country. This interactive display will be hosted in the North Foyer in the Campus Center between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20.

Students for Sustainability designed this giant map of the United States to include regional environmental attributes including projected changes in weather patterns and sea level from climate change and predicted impacts on human health, agriculture, water supply, and ecosystems.

Students for Sustainability hopes this unique educational tool will further raise campus awareness of the importance of adopting more sustainable lifestyles and making more informed decisions.
