When students return to UC, Xavier, and Cincinnati State tomorrow, they’ll face an increasing number of choices in “green” and sustainable studies.
Across town, at X, Economics, Sustainability, and Society, Sustainability, Economics and Management, and Land, Farming, and Community are available majors.
And for those looking for an Associate’s Degree, Cincinnati State offers majors in Sustainable Horticulture Technology and Renewable Energy, as well as Ohio’s first certificate in Sustainable Design and Construction.
These facts are part of the information the non-profit organization Green Umbrella is gathering from the community at large. Anyone wishing to the “Top 100 Ways Cincinnati is Greener than You Think” can contribute on Green Umbrella’s website. One of my personal favorites is this: In 2009, the Pew Study showed Ohio to be ranked best in the Midwest for clean energy job growth.
