Project Highlights: Green Action at SCIENCE

February 4, 2010 at 8:47 am Leave a comment

from University of Copenhagen | Copenhagen, Denmark

The team aims to concentrate its efforts on empowering students and faculty in the university’s Science Department to help Copenhagen become one of the most sustainable universities in Europe. In targeting the students, the team plans to inspire the tutors to host an introductory course on Sustainability ( e.g. encouraging freshmen to use public transportation, buy locally produced organic food, etc). We hope to encourage more sustainable-minded freshmen class through actions such as designing ‘green’ t-shirts for the tutors, and encouraging course directors to educate students on how to behave more sustainably in laboratories and computer facilities. In targeting employees, the team plans to monitor wasteful electrical consumption through the use of appliances at night when no one is in the building. They will use this data to engage in dialogue with employees to reduce this waste. The project’s measureable results will depend on data gathered via questionnaires and measurements of electrical consumption in different departments.
