EcoReps and Green Zone
IN RESIDENCE HALLS
The concept of EcoReps is to facilitate communication and action regarding sustainability between students living on campus and the Office of Sustainability. EcoReps can relay information about upcoming events and programs to their Hall Councils, and also relay suggestions, ideas and concerns raised by students to the Office of Sustainability. This avenue for engagement will benefit campus sustainability efforts to create a healthy environment, on campus and beyond. EcoReps attend Kent Interhall Council's Sustainability Committee, chaired by the Director of Community Development. EcoReps work closely with KIC, Residence Services, and the Office of Sustainability to present sustainable living on campus to their respective Hall Council residents, coordinate one program a semester touching upon the issues of sustainability in their respective residence hall, and keep their Hall Council informed of all campus-wide programming dealing with sustainability (e.g. Campus Sustainability Month, Do It In the Dark, Campus Race to Zero Waste, Earth Month).
GREEN ZONE: A SUSTAINABILITY COMMUNITY
The Green Zone: a Sustainability Community is a Residence Services Living Learning Program located in Dunbar Hall. It is designed for first- and multi-year students from many different majors who share an interest in learning more about sustainability: environment (place), equity (people), and economy (prosperity). The purpose is for students to explore sustainable living with others interested in sustainability, develop professionally connecting with on- and off-campus sustainability partners, and give back through volunteer opportunities. Custom monthly sustainability themes based on students interests and majors enhance social events. In this community, students will form tight-knit bonds, use their unique talents and interests to leave a lasting positive impact advancing sustainability solutions.
