The Office of Sustainability is the locus of many of UWM's conservation efforts.
Some peculiar-looking green-suited figures roamed campus this week. It’s part of an initiative to bring a new energy to the conversation about climate change and sustainability.
Kate Nelson, chief sustainability officer at UWM, joined two visitors to campus in donning striking green suits and taking photos around campus.
“The chance to reimagine sustainability is much welcomed,” Nelson said. “I hope our campus community enjoys the efforts themselves as well as the art we are able to share through it.”
