Campus Conservation Nationals 2013 has come to a close. The results are amazing. Hundreds of thousands of students took personal actions to reduce the impact their residence halls have on the environment. Equally important, students came together to organize their campuses, helping propel the sustainability movement and helping to foster a broader culture of conservation. We would like to thank all of the schools that participated, for their hard work and spirit, and contributing to the incredible collective results!
To commemorate this incredible achievement, NWF has put together a compilation video of the top CCN 2013 Video Contest submissions:
