Green Impact update and auditing course opportunity Our Green Impact Program is underway with information sessions run across the state in July and August for the seven Green Impact teams participating in our pilot program in 2018! Great to see that we have 32 staff across 20 different areas, both professional and academic, both student and non-student facing. Participants are from a diverse range of areas including Philosophy, Architecture, Campus Services, Health and Communicable Diseases, Student Mobility, UTAS Life, the English Language Centre, the TUU, Chemistry and the Sustainability Team (ISD). We welcomed two SIPS interns, Will Plaister in the North and Jia Bao (Renee) in the South, to support Green Impact teams during the program. Will and Renee will also be joining our team evaluations on the 20 November 2018. The University joins nine Universities and 18,000 people across Australia and New Zealand taking part in 2018. Internationally 162 organisations are participating this year and have achieved over 85,000 sustainability actions. If you have any questions about the program or would like more information, our Green Impact Coordinator is available on Wednesdays to meet and support your teams.
