Thanks to the University of Miami’s Green U initiative and because of new technology at local landfills that separate recyclable items, students will no longer need to place bottles, cans and paper products into separate containers.
Students at the University of Miami know that going green is important. But knowing how they can tackle the issue directly might be more difficult. This Saturday is an opportunity for students, specifically architecture students, to learn how they can make a difference. The Emerging Green Builders (EGB) along with the Center for Urban and Community Design will host the Tropical Vernacular Architecture symposium. The symposium is designed to educate both architecture students and local professionals about the benefits of sustainable living and design in relation to tropical climates.
