As Newsweek reports in its latest issue, Grist is launching a newsletter designed specifically for Arizona State University, which has built up an impressive rep on sustainability by doing everything from installing significant solar capacity to opening the nation’s first School of Sustainability. Every two weeks the newsletter will go out to 60,000 students and interested faculty and staff, offering up a combo of content from our website and info about sustainability happenings at ASU and around the Southwest. It’s the first deal of its kind between a university and a green news outlet.
ASU President Michael Crow tells Newsweek, “There is no way that we can attack [sustainability] issues without attacking the status quo from every angle in every way. Grist is a catalyst to stimulate thinking about the status quo.”
[UPDATE: Here’s Grist’s press release about the partnership.]
