Prattfolio Spring 2008 "Waste Not Want Not Issue"
Pratt serves as a model of ecological stewardship in many ways. Pratt’s new building at 536 Myrtle Avenue is expected to receive LEED-Gold certification. Our academic director of sustainability is making ecological literacy an integral part of the Pratt curriculum, and our Information Technology Division is using technology to reduce paper waste. Pratt’s annual Green Week offers an overview of the efforts that have already been made by the Pratt community to green the campus and their professions. The weeklong series of events—gallery exhibitions, competitions, talks, films, and hands-on activities—inspire students and faculty to achieve new levels of creativity in solving the problems that face us. Pratt will continue to encourage sustainable practice at every level of the Institute and by our students, faculty, staff, and community. That change is sure to radiate out as our students and professionals interact with the world around us.
