This fall, the University of Louisville’s Sustainability Council launched an innovative peer-to-peer sustainability outreach and education program for students, faculty, and staff called Eco-Reps. The training series focuses on topics in Sustainability as they appear at UofL.
The program empowers and educates students, staff, and faculty, about the different ways UofL is addressing sustainability.
There are two tiers of training for Eco-Reps at the University of Louisville – both a Basic and an Advanced program. The Basic training includes a series of videos (available on our Eco-Reps Channel), and accompanying supplementary materials available online. Students can register online for the written examination for Eco-Reps Basic certification. Certified Eco-Reps lead workshops, educate peers and offer their expertise to community projects both on and off campus. Along with the basic certification, students can also be certified on a second level in Advanced Sustainability.
Eco-Reps, are expected to serve as a resource person for sustainability at UofL – with their peers, departments, residence hall or community.
