Students interested in learning more about the UW's Energy Transformation strategy to decarbonize the Seattle campus energy system are invited to attend Student Energy Transformation Task Force meetings every other month.
At the recent UW Decarbonization Town Hall, one of the major questions posed from the audience was, "How can I get involved and help decarbonize our campuses?"
There are many different ways students, staff and faculty can get involved at the UW. We've put together just a few here. You can also email email@example.com with questions or for information on other options.

The University of Washington has begun developing its new Energy Transformation Strategy. This multi-year strategy will transition how the Seattle campus heats and cools buildings - from burning natural gas to produce steam, toward a new clean energy system that will use electricity to heat and cool the campus.
The University of Washington is starting the process of transforming and decarbonizing our energy system, and we want student voices to help guide the process.
