Sustainability: Sustainability @ TCC

Sustainability at Tulsa Community College

We hope this Sustainability Guide will help you better understand the complex nature of sustainability as an overarching concept, and help you to envision your role, too, in helping to assure a sustainable present and future for all. - The TCC Sustainability Committee

You can continue Earth Week @ TCC

Last week, we celebrated EARTH WEEK @ TCC!
EARTH WEEK AT TCC WAS DIGITAL
 

TCC Tree Campus USA campus subcommittees provided some great ways to observe Earth Week individually or with your family & friends outdoors. It’s still a challenging time, of course, but the good news remains that you can always go outside and glory in nature’s beauty and gifts! While you’re out there, consider engaging in one or more of the activities suggested to honor the nation’s 51st annual celebration of Mother Earth. See the attachment below for some activities that are still worthwhile, even though Earth Week is officially over.

The Case for Sustainability

Sustainability and TCC

Community Is Our Middle Name — We build community, inside and out, through collaboration, service, sustainability, and social and financial responsibility.

17 United Nations Sustainability Goals

As the United Nations site states, the UN Sustainable Development Goals address what are worldwide challenges—we’re literally all in this together—and work in one global area has implications for all. But they are in fact GOALS to help all of us in our work to attain a sustainable and equitable future. UN Goals reflect the beliefs and values that undergird TCC’s mission and vision. We are grateful for this important development framework.
