Preparations are underway for the Flint Hills Technical College Sustainability Fair in April.
College Sustainability Studies Director Amy Becker joined KVOE's Newsmaker segment with an update Tuesday. She says sustainability is all about meeting the energy needs of the future.
Becker says the college program focuses on so-called "green building" techniques, local food systems and alternative energy. The college has partnered with Westar on a small wind turbine helping to power the Jones Education Center and recently announced a second partnership with Westar to install solar panels for the building.
