CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia is taking the wraps off an array of initiatives designed to promote "green" practices on its Charlottesville grounds.

U.Va. employees and students will present their ideas Thursday at the Campus Sustainability Day Forum. The forum will include an online presentation, a new sustainability website and the launch of a speakers' series.

Organizers say the day is intended to connect student leaders and employees with sustainability information to promote partnerships for a greener community.

Participants will be asked to declare their commitment to the environment by taking a "Sustainability Pledge."
