If you’re a student who wants to get involved with sustainability on campus, Students for a Sustainable Future may be a great route for you!
Students for a Sustainable Future (SSF) is a student organization at Missouri State University committed to advancing campus sustainability through education, motivation, and action.
This is an organization that sets out to educate and motivate.
SSF educates students, faculty, staff, and the community about the reality and effects of global climate change. They encourage the community to take part in making history by leading the global movement, and present feasible and practical opportunities to the community to make a difference through their everyday lifestyle choices. They also empower people to use their time, talent, and passion to make a difference in this effort; and work together to support each other through teamwork and one common goal: to make this world a better and more sustainable place.
Here are a few words from Students for a Sustainable Future president, Libby Cantrell:
“We are a student led organization from Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. Our mission is to educate and empower fellow students and the community about environmental activism and how we can make a difference for the benefit of all.
Any student or faculty member interested in learning about sustainability or living a sustainable lifestyle can come to Students for a Sustainable Future. Our purpose as an organization is to educate first and then motivate individuals to make environmentally conscious choices.
In SSF, you can learn how to push for sustainable action on campus by writing proposals and campaigning.
We lead workshops on how to incorporate sustainable habits and products into your daily life. We discuss topical news relating to sustainability and volunteer in the community. We also like to plan hiking and camping outings.
There’s also opportunity to have a position of leadership as an officer in Students for a Sustainable Future.
We have a President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Historian. We will have some of these positions turning over for the Spring semester, so if you feel passionate and ambitious about SSF’s mission, check us out! Being an officer is a great way to have a voice on campus and promote sustainability to students and the university.
SSF Currently meets every other Tuesday at 7 pm, on the lawn in front of Temple Hall, but to stay current with the club, you’ll want to join our GroupMe or email list.”
