Leading the charge to protect our planet.
Creating the next generation of environmentally conscious citizens. Reducing energy usage building by building, room by room. Saving significant money. It all adds up to more engaged students, sustainable campuses, and a healthier planet.
First, we provide education to improve awareness of the benefits of making energy-saving choices every day. We make everything relevant to how people live, where they visit on campus, and how they interact with others all year long.
Then, we inspire participants to get involved by highlighting sustainability efforts happening on campus, leaders taking action, and events that are coming up. We make it easy to follow it all using hashtags on social media.
And of course, we focus on driving real-life action at all times. Participants join in to earn points or band together with their friends, classmates, coworkers, or team members to take action campus-wide. Badges and score boards keep track of everyone's progress.
A member of the Mines Campus Police and Sustainability Committee, Bryann says about her participation in the sustainability goals on campus, "I think there are many problems in the world that we, as individuals, feel are overwhelming. But if we all practice sustainability in our own small ways, it can add up to make a real difference!" In 2018 Bryann also received the Oredigger community Spirit Award in of appreciation for her dedication to community Policing and involvement with numerous campus groups.
