The GreenSpace Kiosk

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

In Fall 2012, the Office of Sustainability installed the GreenSpace Kiosk, an interactive space with rotating exhibits located in Frist Campus Center. The GreenSpace has featured exhibits ranging from energy to environmental comedy and regularly highlights student initiatives, research using the campus as a laboratory, and Princeton’s operational sustainability progress. The GreenSpace hosts two touchscreens that highlight current campus events, sustainability facts related to each theme, student-produced videos, and the campus Green Tour. The GreenSpace includes two display cases to present items related to each exhibit, a large chalkboard which features student artwork, bins that feature sample “please touch” items, and more.
