Help make DC green – join the Green Team

Durham College’s (DC) Sustainability Committee, which formed in 2011, has a mandate to promote awareness, understanding and the practice of environmental, social and economic stability at DC. As part of this initiative, the newly formed Green Team is providing students with the opportunity to contribute towards the development of creative ideas and solutions aimed at advancing the campus’ sustainability initiatives.

“The Living Green Initiative at Durham College highlights the campus’ diverse sustainability practices and serves as a model for environmental stewardship,” said Tanya Roberts, the college’s sustainability co-ordinator. “The Green Team was created to enable students to connect directly to this initiative, enhancing their college experience through access to greater awareness and meaningful projects and events where they’ll have the chance to play a direct role in influencing the sustainable future of Durham College.”

Working hand-in-hand with DC’s Sustainability Committee members, the Green Team will develop goals, raise awareness and participate in various sustainability events and projects. Those who wish to be Green Team leaders will also receive specialized training and have the opportunity to train other students on campus to become future sustainability leaders.
