Planning for 14/15 Communications, Campus Relations Food & Beverage, Building Operations Building Energy Monitoring Sustainable Packaging for Food Outlets • AMS Sustainability Centre programming • AMS Composting Program expansion
Timber and Runoff • Timber is a mechanical tree that responds to interactions with surrounding environment • Runoff is a water feature
Sustainable Wall Art Projects • Petri dish wall art • Planned art project to be displayed on top of the Nest, TBA
Sustainability Dashboard • To be placed within the AMS Sustainability Centre • Will feature building waste consumption and energy use once data is sufficient for display • Also to be used for communication regarding sustainability events
Rooftop Garden • Will be operated by Orchard Garden • MOU currently in draft format
Waste Auditing Program • Electronic waste scale is currently being wired inside the loading bay, to be in functioning order shortly
Pocket Lounge - Sustainability • To reflect sustainability history in British Columbia, especially on UBC campus
AMS Composting Program • In-vessel composting machine to be inside the loading bay by the end of this summer • Vermicomposting (worm composting) should be continued in collaboration with the Rooftop Garden
AMS Sustainability Centre • Will feature display pieces such as the Sustainability Dashboard, as well as material for themes and programs as they are developed • To serve as both an educational resource centre as well as a centre for student engagement in sustainability • The goal is to set a solid programming and administrative plan by the opening in January
Building Energy Monitoring • The plan is to create a simple-to-use energy monitoring system to be displayed on the Sustainability Dashboard • This will provide students with knowledge on their usage, as well as provide auditable data
Sustainable Packaging • As we move into the AMS Student Nest, there will be increased opportunities to reduce the waste we produce, and to close the loop on as much waste as possible by involving the composting program • The goal is to have completely recyclable or compostable packaging material for all food outlets
Summary • All categories will be worked on either directly or indirectly • Many projects will be in place for rollout with the opening of the AMS Student Nest • A heavy focus is placed upon building interactions and student engagement for this year • New projects and programs may be developed as the year progresses!
