Young adults have the power to drive change within their communities and Focus the Nation is a perfect example of this.

Since the Negawatt Summit, the Focus Wisconsin Team has been busy having meetings with stakeholders and determining what types of incentives would be effective in pushing efficiency and green living within rental properties. Right now, the team is focusing on clarifying and defining what constitutes sustainable student behavior and what incentives lead students to engaging more often in this type of behavior. To do this, they are surveying students and community members on questions related to sustainability, factors that are considered when selecting a rental property, and the most convenient ways for college students to access information about the sustainability of rental properties. In a little over 24 hours after the Focus Wisconsin team sent out the initial survey, over 200 people have responded and the team has increased their goal on number of students and community members giving input. You can take the survey too! Just click here to get started. The survey should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
