RU’s Sustainability Studies program partnered with the ICA back in the Spring of 2012, when students in Prof. Mike Bryson’s SUST 210 Sustainable Future honors course performed community-based research as part of the Accelerate 77 Project — an ongoing effort in Chicago to map, document, connect, and foster sustainability initiatives in all 77 official community areas of the city. The Building Community Energy Strategies is an outgrowth of that effort focused on how each Chicago neighborhood can conserve energy, reduce GHG emissions, and develop clean energy sources locally as well as city-wide.
