A brief description of the institution’s sustainability partnerships with the local community:

Evergreen faculty, staff, and students have innumerable ties to local community organizations and agencies. Many local environmental groups and non-profits were founded by Evergreen alum, and our students contribute thousands of hours to community-based action every year.

One key example is the college’s collaboration with the Thurston Climate Action Team (TCAT), who are “dedicated to creating a healthy and sustainable future for Thurston County by encouraging, coordinating, and taking action on climate change”. Evergreen administrative staff have been fundamental to the development and growth of this organization. The college has organized and hosted multiple educational symposia and workshops for local elected officials, business owners, agency representatives, and citizen activists. We continue to work with TCAT to support collaborative action among leading community members and groups, and elected officials to find local solutions for climate change impacts.
