2014 Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN)

Now in its fourth year, Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) is the largest electricity and water reduction competition program for colleges and universities in the world. CCN is a partnership of Lucid Design Group, U.S. Green Building Council’s Center for Green Schools, National Wildlife Federation and the Alliance to Save Energy.

CCN gives a common voice and motivation to hundreds of thousands of students across North America, all working together to reduce consumption and mitigate the impacts of climate change. CCN encourages students to involve their peers and staff in educational events that can have an immediate and lasting impact on their school’s carbon emissions and campus culture.

CCN offers an unparalleled opportunity to:
  • Foster a culture of conservation on your campus 
  • Save energy and water in your dorms or academic buildings 
  • Enable students to develop leadership, community organizing and career development skills 
  • Become a part of the CCN legacy  
Those who participate in this competition are offered tremendous support including training webinars, resource guides, sample posters and flyers, templates, and your very own Building Dashboard website to communicate competition standings to your community.

A team of  Conservation Superheros will help spread the word about CCN 2014. They will travel to campuses across North America and help reduce electricity and water use. The first member of the CCN superhero crew is a character known as Captain Kilowatt. Over the next few months, the rest of the superhero team will be introduced.
