In 2006 the Yale Office of Sustainability hosted the Northeast Sustainability Conference. Out of this conference our office developed the "2006 Northeast Sustainability Conference Report" http://sustainability.yale.edu/sites/default/files/necsc_report.pdf
Our office has attended and presented at every AASHE conference. This includes a presentation at the last AASHE conference in which our office collaborated with Duke University and Furman University to conduct a panel discussion on Local Carbon Mitigation Projects.
Our office also frequently makes presentations about our Climate Change Reduction Strategy at other institutions and organizations within the State of Connecticut.

A brief summary of additional ways the institution collaborates with other campuses to advance sustainability :
The Office of Sustainability has established a leadership platform upon which we exchange best practices with institutions locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. By discussing our objectives and methods, we motivate other institutions and communities to set similarly ambitious goals and we advance the dialogue on an issue of transcendent importance. The Office is now working on how to enhance the existing inter-institutional relationships and build new alliances of this nature within New Haven and Connecticut.
