Clark Green Room Project Launches

Green Room

    


On September 30, SynergE Worcester launched the second phase of the Clark University Green Room Pilot Project. Continuing on the success of the Spring 2012 pilot program, this peer-to-peer educational program aims to increase energy conservation and sustainable practices in the residence halls through the 2012-2013 academic year.

The project trains students to Green Certify their peers’ residence hall rooms. The student Green Auditors are trained to perform audits for their peers and recommend improvements to their practices. Participating residents are asked to make three new sustainable choices for the year—if they follow through, they earn Green Room Certification. Actions include activating power management settings on computers, turning off lights whenever exiting the room, and cutting down on long showers.

Clark students can sign up to receive their Green Room Audit for the 2012-13 academic year at clarkgreenroom.tumblr.com/signup.
