Group Meeting

The Illinois Green Economy Network (IGEN) has made huge strides in the advancement of sustainability across the state through its network of community colleges. Through a variety of funding and programming, IGEN supports college efforts to prepare students for green careers, turn campuses into living laboratories, and save colleges money through energy demand reduction, energy efficiency and renewable energy. These efforts help to conserve and protect Illinois’ vital natural resources and educate its residents. With your help, together we can continue to make our communities healthy and prosperous for generations to come.


You can sponsor an upcoming IGEN event, program/project, sustainability area, or help us improve our Measure of Success on college campuses.
