The Office of Sustainability, the University Committee on Sustainability and the Weatherspoon Art Museum have awarded UNCG’s first Creative Sustainability Initiative Grants.
The inaugural winners will receive $500 in materials to help them make their ideas a reality:
- Austin Loam, a junior interior architecture student, who is developing designs for multi-family residential housing that could be used in the Glenwood neighborhood;
- Steven Landis, a graduate student from pursuing a master’s degree in composition, who is working with a choreographer for a site specific performance on the bridge in UNCG’s Peabody Park;
- Corry Mears, a junior interior architecture student, is creating a model for a solar charging station meant to be used for personal devices while waiting for the bus.
Each winner will present the projects on Campus Sustainability Day, October 24, 2012, in the Virginia Dare Room of Alumni House from 10 a.m to noon. Steven Landis will provide a performance directly following this event.
