Student Advocacy at William & Mary

October 29, 2012

If you are looking for a way to get way to get directly involved with sustainability on campus, SEAC – the Student Environmental Action Coalition at William & Mary – is well underway this semester, but it is never too late to get involved. We are working on several exciting projects, and the time is now to add yours to the list!

SEAC’s campaign structure enables us to reach into all aspects of sustainability on campus, and allows diverse ideas and initiatives to flourish. Our Energy Justice Campaign is newly formed and focuses on a wide variety of energy issues. EJ meets on Monday nights in the SEAC office, which is (delightfully furnished and) located in the campus center. Our Gardens campaign has been working hard on the campus gardens, and are currently planning for an herb garden. They meet every Wednesday at 6:30 in the SEAC office, and hold work days in the gardens on Sunday at 3:00! Recycling, which meets at 9:00 on Tuesdays, has put together a FREEmarket that promotes the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle) and foster a sense of community on campus.

We welcome your ideas both at SEACspace and at our Big SEAC Meetings, which take place Monday nights at 8:30 in Washington 223.

SEAC operates on consensus basis, which means that all decisions are approved by the group as a whole. Basically, we’ll talk ideas out until we come to a conclusion that works for everyone, which, in my opinion, helps to foster a sense of shared vision and purpose. Just as decisions are made by the whole community, so are ideas, and so are actions! SEAC is what you make of it, so come out to a meeting and make it yours.
