Students Leaders and Energy Literacy in Tennessee

Grants from the Employee Community Grant program support projects and solutions that take a whole-systems approach, are multidisciplinary in planning and execution, and are designed to solve problems and not just respond to them. One of our Knoxville facility's focus areas for their Employee Community Grant Program is Energy Use and Efficiency.

This year, Knoxville awarded a financial grant to Focus the Nation to fund a Green Revolving Fund on the University of Tennessee Knoxville Campus. This support will develop two new student leaders and support those leaders to build a team to implement the Green Revolving Fund. This grant will promote energy literacy and leadership development skills of the students involved. 

We are proud to support programs like this that focus on developing leaders in environmental stewardship. 

This Earth Week, how are you developing your energy efficiency knowledge and leadership?
