In collaboration with Facilities & Services, the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) established six teams consisting of faculty, staff, and students to examine broad themes within the Illinois Climate Action Plan, a five-year-plan for campus sustainability goals (you can read the 2010 version here). The teams are currently recommending concrete steps the campus should take to meet its iCAP targets, as well as developing suggested revisions to the iCAP.
Each SWATeam has two faculty members, two staff members, and two students. Each team also has an iSEE intern serving as a “clerk” for the group. Visit the SWATeams page to see an up-to-date list of members.
Each SWATeam is expected to constitute a Consultation Group for input; this group will consist of faculty, staff, students, and community members with expertise in all areas encompassed by their topic. SWATeams will select Consultation Group members, based on consultations with iSEE staff and/or self-nominations from prospective participants, and they will consult with members of the Consultation Group in formal meetings and/or informally as they deem appropriate.
