The College will host several green organizations offering information and internship opportunities.
Not too far from LaGuardia Community College, separating Queens from
Brooklyn, is Newtown Creek. This tributary of the East River may seem
small and inconsequential at first, but it is actually one of the most
polluted areas in the United States and the site of the largest oil
spill in the nation; one of the largest in the world. Many local groups seek to revive it, not only to enjoy the waterfront
area, but also to eliminate health concerns associated with its
pollution. One of these is the Natural Sciences Department at LaGuardia.
At LaGuardia’s Vision Summitin February 2009, members of the College community voted unanimously to seek out and implement initiatives that would reflect the College’s commitment to provide leadership for a sustainable world. This website showcases how LaGuardia students, faculty and staff are doing just that: lessening their impact on the environment and carrying the message of the importance of sustainable practices -whether on a large or small scale- to others.
