Hands Across the Sand event on Treasure Island, June 26

The Deepwater Horizon oil rig leak in the Gulf of Mexico has become the worst oil disaster in US history and is a serious threat to the entire Gulf Coast’s fragile ecosystem and thriving tourism industry.

Join sustainable|SPC and Hands Across the Sand at TREASURE ISLAND on June 26, 11am to 12:15 pm to raise awareness about the devastating effects oil drilling will have on our coastal economies and environment; to protest lifting the bans on near and offshore oil drilling; and to convince our State Legislators, Governors, Congress and President Obama to adopt policies encouraging clean and renewable energy sources.

Go to Treasure Island (112th Ave parking lot) at 11:00am, rain or shine.

Join hands from 12:00-12:15pm, forming lines in the sand against oil drilling in our coastal waters.

Leave only your footprints.

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
