The 2018 Green Impact Program is COMING SOON!
Officially launching on Thursday, 22 March.
Green Impact is a change and engagement program, developed in the UK by the National Union of Students (NUS). Piloted for the first time in Australia at the University of Melbourne in 2017, it’s been implemented by over 400 organisations worldwide. It aims to raise awareness of sustainability, university wide, by giving people a focused approach to tackling sustainability issues and supporting them in achieving these actions.
It is a fantastic program for staff and students wanting to make a difference but are not sure how, as well as providing recognition and support for those who are already working hard to implement positive change!
The Pilot Program
The 2017 program was a huge success! With 274 individuals, within 30 teams (22 audited) undertaking 588 sustainability based actions. To see all the results and winners from last year visit our winner’s page and gallery.
The overwhelming response from the 2017 teams was that the program was fun, empowering, fostered collaboration and shared engagement and allowed staff and students to embrace a shared passion.
How to get involved
Individuals are encouraged to get into teams and undertake actions from a pre-designed toolkit. Activities cover a holistic approach to sustainability including: waste and recycling, engagement, energy, water, travel, biodiversity and health & wellbeing.
The 2018 program will be launching on 22 March! Now is the time to start thinking about creating a team or joining an existing one. Watch this space – further details will be coming soon!
