The HCC Sustainability Council is comprised of an organic mix of faculty, students, staff, administrators and community members that typically meet the last Friday of alternating months from 2-4pm. The aim is to collaborate on group ideas and initiatives that will help our college and community become more resilient. It is also a platform to present your sustainability related ideas and solicit help from a group of individuals who want to help support your endeavors! Topics range from recycling, local and healthy food production, social entrepreneurship, water and energy conservation, technology, green events, training, and more! See a list of HCC's sustainability related accomplishments here.
