University of Delaware faculty, staff and students are invited to volunteer as Green Liaisons for their respective offices, units, departments or student groups. Green Liaisons will share information about environmental sustainability initiatives and opportunities while identifying improvements in their units in support of the University’s Climate Action Plan.
The University of Delaware has adopted one of the most aggressive plans in the nation to reduce its carbon emissions. But as the plan itself states, UD will only be successful if the entire community is involved in these efforts. The mission of the Green Liaison Program (GLP) is to achieve this involvement by promoting an ethic of environmental responsibility campus-wide. Green Liaisons will be asked to do the following:
- Raise awareness about environmentally-friendly activities and behaviors;
- Act as informational channels regarding University environmental programs and initiatives; and
- Identify and initiate environmental projects in academic and administrative units and within student groups across the University.
The GLP will be primarily an electronic effort maintained through monthly e-letters featuring a theme, successful projects and green advice. The UD Sustainability Task Force will also offer several Green Liaison Lunch workshops each semester on various topics and available to all Green Liaisons.
