While governments met in Paris this December to tackle climate change at COP21, students from Webster University's Geneva campus and 20 other top universities were meeting across town to address the same issues with innovative local plans.

Webster Geneva Scholars Program students Etsehiwot Negash, Nour Lashuel and Joy Warugi, advised by Peter Carson, adjunct faculty from the Webster Geneva Sustainability program, answered the Forum’s Call for Proposals with “GWEMS” (Geneva Webster Environmental Management System). Their project aims to improve Webster Geneva’s environmental sustainability by following the International Standard Organization’s (ISO) environmental standard.
