Sustainability does not happen by chance. It must be engineered.
That’s why, each year on Earth Day in April, the Clark School invites its own faculty members and students, interested people from other University of Maryland schools, and guest speakers from industry and government, to come together for the Clark School’s Engineering Sustainability Workshop.
The goal of the workshop is to present and propose ways to maximize technology's positive impact on the long-term availability of natural resources, and to minimize its negative impact. The workshop offers presentations, demonstrations, and discussions in which all may participate. At the conclusion of the workshop, a list is made of new ideas for sustainability initiatives proposed by attendees; this list will be posted on this website for future reference and possible development and execution.
Each year we select a particular sustainability focus, and ask a related campus organization to act as co-sponsor of the event with the Clark School. In 2010, the second year of the workshop, the focus is on water and the co-sponsoring organization is the University of Maryland Office of Sustainability. In future years, the school will select other foci and partners.
We encourage all to join us and contribute new ideas for engineering sustainability.
