Clark Green Room Project
Launched in the Spring of 2012, the Green Room Project is a peer-to-peer educational pilot program at Clark University aimed at energy conservation and other sustainable practices in the residence halls. Any Clark on-campus resident can sign up to get Green Room Verified by a team of trained students. The Project is a collaborative initiative between Clark Eco Reps, Sustainable Clark, Physical Plant, and a number of other partners.
Clark University’s has boldly set the goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2030. Residence halls at Clark University use about 1/3 of the campus’s energy, and each resident student contributes about 50lbs of carbon emissions into the atmosphere each day living on campus. Bottom line is that the residence halls represent a huge opportunity for reduced energy use and carbon emissions, and every resident student can make a difference.
How it works:
1) Resident Clarkies sign up to receive their Green Room Check by a trained student auditor.
2) Auditor performs check-up of the room and living practices and provides recommendations for actions to live greener.
3) Residents commit to taking at least 3 actions and – if they follow through – receive Green Room status!
Don’t wait. Sign up to have your room Green Room Verified for the 2012-2013 academic year!
