Making a Difference

The team's goal is to implement projects and campaigns that will encourage sustainable actions across campus. Supported by BC Hydro's Workplace Conservation Awareness Program, the team's primary focus is on reducing energy consuption at the university and is, and will continue to be, the primary focus at its meetings. We welcome any members to share ideas on what should be a priority at UFV, and what activities and communication strategies would be most effective to green all UFV campuses.
Expectations of Members

Aside from the meetings, it is up to you how much time you want to offer to the Green Team. 1/2 hour to 1 hour a month promoting campaigns and getting the message out is about what they average member spends amongst their own groups.
