You’ve got a Zero Waste program… now how do you get students to actually do the right thing?
While most Zero Waste programs are set up by staff and administration, engaging students to practice those “R’s” (and beyond!) will make it truly successful. This webinar will feature presentations from leaders in Zero Waste and higher education on best practices for getting students involved with Zero Waste on your campus:
- Chris Kane, Campus Coordinator and Director of Resource Development, PLAN: The Post-Landfill Action Network – A Student Led Zero Waste Movement
- Jack DeBell, Development Director, University of Colorado-Boulder – EPR: Student Advocacy’s Finest Hour
- Mike Carey, Sustainability Coordinator, Orange Coast College – Student Government – Allies in Your Zero Waste Efforts
- Jennifer Hobson, Zero Waste Senior Program Coordinator, The University of Texas at Austin – Incorporating Students in Zero Waste Operations
At the end of the webinar, attendees can exchange successes and challenges, suggest other topics for webinars and tools. USGBC’s Zero Waste College & University Technical Committee (ZWCUTC) mission is to help you meet and exceed your Zero Waste and sustainability goals.
Each quarter, ZWCUTC plans to host a webinar with educational topics and opportunities to continue open dialogue around Zero Waste in higher education. The next webinar will take place September 13th at 10am pacific and will be focused on hard to recycle materials (save the date!)
We invite anyone interested in learning more about this topic and the ZWCUTC to join us July 26th! Please share with your friends and colleagues.
