On Oct. 5, Todd Sanders, instructor in mechanical engineering and a green leader at PCC, led a tour of a German group of the college’s sustainability efforts at the Sylvania Campus. The group learned about the E6-Net Zero proposal – making the campus “net zero” in terms of its carbon emissions – PCC’s Climate Action Plan and the Climate Energy Leadership Task Force.

A group of nearly 10 individuals from Lower Saxony, Germany, were interested in sustainable practices in education, local politics, psychology, solar panel companies, wind energy companies and environmental research, among others.
