Remedy: UArts Sustainability Initiative

Remedy is an organization that works to promote an increased awareness and understanding among the University community of environmental issues such as conservation, preservation and restoration. Through advocating for sustainable development and initiating environmental programming on campus, Remedy seeks to establish the University of the Arts as an environmentally positive example for the benefit of the University itself and the greater Philadelphia community.

Remedy offers a platform for students, faculty and staff to educate themselves, explore more sustainable alternatives, and solve environmental problems, both on the University’s campus and in the Philadelphia community. We do this through consensus decision-making, transparency, active non-violence, diplomacy, and sensitivity to a range of opinions and perceptions.
