A green team is an effective way to reduce a department’s environmental impact. A team approach ensures all offices are participating in the program and allows for the work to be distributed among several people. One member of the team is a department head to show executive buy-in and so decisions can be made quickly. Contact SU’s Sustainability Manager for help with getting your green team going and facilitating the first few meetings.
Lunch Time Discussion Course
Faculty, staff and students can participate in a free, weekly discussion course during the lunch hour. A different topic is explored fall and winter quarter, such as: voluntary simplicity, health, and food. Past participants say the diverse perspectives gave them a different way of looking at the issues. The courses last from 4 to 7 weeks and weekly readings take about 40 minutes. The Office for Sustainability buys the course book. Look in the weekly Campus News email to find out when courses are offered. For a list of discussion topics, visit nwei.org.
