Maharishi University of Management was recently one of 160 colleges and universities recognized for their sustainability efforts in a report released by the National Wildlife Federation.
The report, titled "Generation E: Students Leading for a Sustainable, Clean Energy Future," recognized MUM's organic vegetarian food service, locally grown organic vegetables in campus greenhouses, and composting efforts.
The report said that sustainability has become the major cause among the young generation today — the first time in many years that the country has witnessed this sort of youth movement. This generation is being called Generation E, the letter "e" standing for ecology, sustainable economics, and social equality.
