Green Teams: The Missing Link in Climate Action
Engineers are responsible for helping design systems that can save energy and water, and use resources wisely to help propel our world to a more sustainable future. But what happens after the construction crews leave? Who will keep up the focus on reducing the organization's carbon footprint, make sure people know how and what to recycle, and continually educate and inspire the organization to take on more aggressive strategies? Who will keep up the positive vibe around acting sustainably?
In this presentation and discussion, let's talk about how developing a Green Team can help build a culture that can make real change work and persist, long after your work as an energy modeler is done. And get tips for starting your own team at work, in your neighborhood, school or faith community.
