Webinar: Equipping Students to Launch Green Teams at Work
April 1, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
Through an online course on sustainability team management, working adult students recruited and launched green teams at their places of work. Despite having little authority and few resources, students in this online course at Florida International University were able to successfully implement initiatives such as electric vehicle charging station installation, low flow fixture switch out, water bottle and single use plastic reduction, beach clean ups, and environmentally preferable purchasing audits. Students improve and apply skills in leadership, business case development, and change management to start and improve sustainability efforts.
This webinar is part of a series of webinars on sustainability in the curriculum put on by SCC and AASHE.
