RATCLIFF presents at 2012 CA Higher Education Sustainability Conference, UC Davis, June 19, 2012

The Campus District, Environmental Planning Beyond Green Buildings

Relevant to campuses of all sizes, a panel discussion focusing on buildings, infrastructure, land resources,
public/private partnerships and pedagogy will shed light on a path towards a net zero future by addressing
sustainability within the framework of a systems planning model. Viewed in isolation, the problems for
an academic institution to achieve a net zero future are insolvable, but taken as a whole they suggest progressive opportunities as part of a net zero district’s planning.
