Blueprint: Recycling at Temple University

Through her Blueprint, Amelia sought to improve recycling policies at Temple University by encouraging student input in administrative processes with respect to sustainability issues. She advocated for a decision-making process that allowed for student, faculty, and staff involvement and a commitment for supporting projects with a sustainability focus, addressing primarily the lack of recycling awareness and availability on campus that was exacerbated by administrative resistance to student-led change.
