It takes little time to make a big impact
on our community's environment!
MIT's Green ambassadors make a positive impact on the MIT environment by leading the way as role models for sustainable behaviors and by influencing the way the MIT infrastructure responds to the challenges of supporting a "green" environment. Nearly 100 ambassadors across MIT's campus contribute to the greening of MIT's departments, labs and centers (DLCs).
The program is open to support and administrative staff who can volunteer approximately 1 hour each month to distribute recycling information, collect feedback, and attend 1-2 networking meetings per year. Each department may have one or more ambassadors depending on department size and recycling needs.
The ambassador's primary role is to act as a liaison between the Green committee and the ambassador's DLC. Specific responsibilities may include:
Ambassadors get information from the Green Committe co-chairs in the form of email notifications and meeting minutes.
To join and let your influence make a difference in recycling at MIT, please contact the Green Committee, Staff for Sustainability.
