Green Office Training Luncheon (free, for faculty and staff)
Thursday, November 9, 2017 · Noon - 1 PM
On Campus : Commons 331
PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR DEPARTMENT:
Note: Lunch will be provided but space is limited to the first 50 people who RSVP (https://my.umbc.edu/groups/sustainability/events/36376) .
Take a lunch break, meet active and engaged members of the community, and to learn how to update your offices and colleagues with green practices- to reap the benefits in efficiency and resource conservation every day!
Our actions- setting up recycling bins, helpful labels and energy saving settings- all add up across campus and over time, setting a proud example of UMBC's commitment to sustainability. Together, Green Offices and the other efforts of the work groups are part of the solutions generated to our campus climate commitment.
We’ll update your office with new recycling bins, update the labeling and signage for existing ones. We’ll review energy conservation guidelines and help post reminders and prompts. We’ll also help you to inform your officemates about sustainable practices, and to invite them to select green commitments. Acting today will pay off every day!
At the Green Office Training Luncheon we’ll review the 3 steps to certification:
• Training and approval
• Checklist (energy, waste, and transportation)
• Implementation (with available assistance from Eco-Ambassadors)
With the help of our toolkit and our eco-ambassadors (who can visit your office to help facilitate, deliver and implement the green office program) transforming your office is a snap!
Just bring your questions, ideas, and an appetite!
