For the first time ever, the FAS Green Program will hire a GSAS Green Living Rep to educate her peers in the GSAS dorm community about sustainability.
The FAS Green Program, a partnership between the Office for Sustainability and FAS Office of Physical Resources and Planning, employs undergraduate and graduate student representatives to do peer outreach about sustainable living in their dorms. These students educate their peers on environmental issues while advocating for pragmatic environmental efforts such as recycling, using (free) energy efficient light bulbs, and reducing food waste. The program also works with the administration to make sustainable changes in their facilities and operations. The campaign schedule and materials are developed by the FAS Green Program coordinator and GSAS Student Services.
As a Green Living Rep you will:
- Host study breaks and other events where you will engage your peers the current campaign and on issues of personal environmental responsibility.
- Example campaigns: Sustainability Pledge, Waste Reduction Contests, Student Sustainability Grants, Resource conservation in labs, Green Carpet Awards.
- Example events: vegan cooking night, clothing swap, movie screening, FreeCycle events.
- Work with administrators to identify and execute conservation projects around campus.
- act as a liaison between the students and administrators on issues of sustainability, comfort, health and efficiency.
- Develop creative outreach materials (posters, emails, eco boards, etc).
- Learn about the most up-to-date environmental and sustainability science.
- Receive updates about Harvard’s formulation of and progress toward sustainability goals and share the updates with your House/dorm.
