Compact Discussed at World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities

The City of Cambridge spoke about the Compact during the third annual World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities (WSSD-U). The three day event allowed participants to share ideas and innovative approaches to further universities’ sustainability efforts through work displays and presentations. This year the event took place September 14-16 on the campus of fellow Compact member MIT with the theme of “Designing Tomorrow’s Campus: Resiliency, Vulnerability, and Adaptation.” Collaborative community partnerships and engagement was one of five topics and where the City of Cambridge Director of Environmental and Transportation Planning, Susanne Rasmussen, highlighted the Compact’s framework, three-year work plan, and it’s unique business-city government-university partnership.
