Climate and energy workshop
(2007-10-05)
(WOUB) - Green was the color of the day yesterday at Ohio University's Baker Center, where OU sponsored a climate and energy workshop.

The event brought together about 150 people from 22 colleges and universities statewide and a few state agencies to talk about new initiatives affecting sustainability and energy use on campuses.

Mike Jung works on energy issues in the governors office and spoke about the governor's Energy, Jobs and Progress plan.

OU psychology major Luke Black has been part of the local sustainability movement for four years and says, for him, discovering sustainability was an epiphany.

OU says the workshop was the first of its kind in Ohio.
