About the Club


CCAT strives to effectively demonstrate sustainable living through the promotion of environmental and socially responsible behavior and community building. Student driven at its core, CCAT supports student engagement and innovation to create practical Appropriate Technology demonstrations. Contributing to local, national, and international networks, CCAT seeks to be an information resource center on Appropriate Technology and sustainable living, accessible to people across the world. We also seek to critically examine assumptions surrounding technologies and promote a more holistic, systems approach to the thought process behind and the use of technology in society. Through integration into the HSU curriculum, the organization brings the ethos of sustainability directly to students, challenging them to experiment in the living laboratory that is CCAT. Operating as a consensus-based collective, CCAT works to bring a variety of viewpoints and experiences into the organization, creating a comprehensive and diverse view of what it means to be a demonstration site and education center for Appropriate Technology.
