Sustainability at UW
Olikara helped found the UW–Madison Office of Sustainability and served as its first student leader. Now based in Washington, D.C., he is a founder and chief executive of the Millennial Action Project, which organizes bipartisan caucuses of elected officials under the age of 40.
The first Office of Sustainability-certified Green Offices are the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies Academic Programs Office, UHS Counseling Services, LGBT Campus Center, Facilities Planning & Management, and the Morgridge Center for Public Service.
"The University of Wisconsin–Madison will be a living model for sustainability, exemplifying values and actions that demonstrate our commitment to stewardship of resources, respect for place and the health and well-being of the broader community, now and for the future."SUSTAINABILITY TASK FORCE REPORT, 2010
