Give grads the green

Striving to be eco-friendly is not just about attaining a trendy, chic status for aesthetic reasons. Sustainability is a crucial quality that all institutions should seek.

The proposal to create a green roof above the Graduate Students’ Association’s (GSA) lounge is exactly the type of initiative that Carleton should be supporting in order to make progress in this area; green roofs reduce the amount of energy buildings consume.
