SUSTAINING OUR WORLD

Green FieldEnergy from renewable sources – the sun, wind, biofuels and water – minimizes net carbon emissions and has major potential to help resolve climate change.  Sustainable living practices – choices and actions based on "total effects" on the environment – can help slow the pace of global warming. 

2006 Washington State Odyssey Days offers the latest key developments and updates in biofuels and advanced technology vehicles; solar power and other renewable energy resources; and sustainable business practices, as organizations and private citizens join the global effort to combat greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.

GLOBAL IMPACT

Founded in 1992, Odyssey Days is now an international event in 59+ cities across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Germany!  Over 24,000 people attended Odyssey events in 2004, with over 24 million people impacted by media messages about the purpose and focus of Odyssey events.  2006 Odyssey events around the world are poised to reach even larger audiences, given rising fuel prices, concerns over global warming, and increased awareness of the need to model environmental stewardship through creative, sustainable solutions and attitudes.

2006 Washington State Odyssey Days will offer free informative workshops; talks by leading experts; presentations by entrepreneurs developing new energy resources; renewable energy educational exhibits; "Ride-and-Drive" demonstrations of advanced and prototype alternative energy vehicles; and updates from policy makers about new incentives to encourage non-petroleum energy solutions.  On October 13th and 14th events throughout the SCC campus will inform, entertain and engage all those with a curiosity about or an exploding interest in the alternative and renewable energy fields. 

WHY SHORELINE COMMUNITY COLLEGE?

Entrance to Shoreline Community CollegeSCC is Washington State's only National Training Center for Alternative Fuels and Advanced Technology Vehicles, providing the Pacific Northwest with locally administered, standardized consumer education and technical training and certification through the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium to promote the adoption of biofuels, hybrid electric and fuel cell vehicles, and light and heavy duty vehicles powered by alternative energy sources. 

ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP

SCC is a founding member of the Seattle Climate Partnership, an alliance of the region's most influential employers leading the Greater Seattle community to reduce regional greenhouse gas emissions and increase economic competitiveness.  Building on these innovations, SCC has launched an Environmental Leadership Initiative, "Sustaining Our Community through Mindful Choices," promoting environmental stewardship throughout the college and furthering its mission to educate students and the community regarding alternative energy resources.

NEW ZERO ENERGY SOLAR DEMONSTRATION SITE

SCC is also the new site for an award-winning "Zero Energy" modular home designed and built by Washington State University architectural and energy research students.  The structure incorporates sustainable building materials and standards and is completely powered by solar energy.  From this new permanent location, the Northwest Solar Center, a project of W.S.U., will begin offering interactive tours during Odyssey Days to show the benefits of solar electricity, including systems designed to work in cloudy climates and programs to make solar modules affordable.
