LIU Post Sustainability

At LIU Post, sustainability is about drawing upon our campus community’s diverse strengths and talents to promote our vision of a healthy, beautiful, efficient, and just planet.   Through special lectures, energy conservation, tree replacement programs, recycling, community workshops, and other initiatives, we work to ensure that our natural systems are healthy and can meet our needs as well as future generations. Our goal is to educate our campus community and the greater public about sustainability inspire dialogue...and to spur action.

Sustainable Creative Expressions Contest

The LIU Post Recycling Program in conjunction with Sustainable Post is pleased to announce this year’s Sustainable Creative Expressions Award. We are looking for works that express how you are bringing forth a more sustainable planet. Your work may relate to the LIU Post campus or the world at large.

In other words, what are you doing to change the world? What are you doing to make a difference? What things have you done to contribute to a more environmentally sound, a more socially acceptable, and a more economically viable planet? In the context of “world,” this could pertain to your home, your community, your University, your town, your region or your planet at large.

If you have any questions regarding the Sustainable Creative Expressions Contest, please do not hesitate to contact William Achnitz, Sustainability Coordinator at LIU Post, at 516-299-2623 or via email at We are happy to assist you in any way possible.
