Perkins Coie Breakfast Series 2020-2021

The CleanTech Alliance Breakfast Series presents notable clean tech executive speakers for a monthly conversation followed by networking with 100 cleantech industry leaders from across the region. A different speaker and topic is presented on the second Wednesday of each month (8:00 a.m. to 9:40 a.m.) from September through May (except November, which is reserved for the CleanTech Alliance Annual Meeting).


March 10, 2021 – Campus-Scale Sustainability with Scott Morgan, The Evergreen State College

Scott Morgan is the Director of Sustainability at The Evergreen State College in Olympia. He was also a founding member of WAHESC, the Washington Higher Education Sustainability Coalition, which is an informal network of sustainability officers and faculty from colleges and universities across the state.

Currently, Scott is also Evergreen’s lead COVID safety manager, which has been an illuminating experience in the similarities and differences between responses to slow and fast-moving crises.

Evergreen’s Office of Sustainability coordinates and guides on campus sustainability efforts as well as institutional collaborations with community-based groups. Scott has worked in agriculture and private industry, founded and managed a small non-profit, worked with youth-at-risk, taught GED and pre-college classes, and has spent the past few years immersed in the public sector. This diverse set of perspectives informs his recognition that long-term sustainability will require a dynamic harmony between environmental, social, and economic health.
