The Sustainability for the Americas initiative at Ball State University provides exchange students of the Sustainability for the Americas Initiative opportunities to work with Ball State students on a number of immersive learning sustainability projects. These include the:

  • LDI LandLab as a Resource-balancing design campus
  • Green technology research, education and demonstration projects
  • EPA-P3 Straw Bale Building and Resource-balancing Built-site Systems

The straw-bale built-site is designed as a resource-balancing integrated water-wastewater-energy-building-landscape system that harvests resources, transports these resources, processes them, distributes these resources for use and uses, regenerates resource quality, and returns these high quality resources back to the site.
