2019 Student Eco-Reps Projects and Partnerships
Penn's Student Eco-Reps program is an environmental leadership opportunity for students interested in advancing sustainability through the implementation of campus-based projects. Students work as paid employees of Penn’s Sustainability Office and collaborate with our University partners to carry out projects in support of Penn’s Climate Action Plan.
Student Eco-Reps work in teams to help implement sustainability projects with various campus partners. Each year, we solicit projects from the Penn community and select a handful of opportunities to implement in collaboration with Penn departments. Reports on the projects are shared with the Penn community at a meeting each spring; this year the presentations are April 26. Details will be posted to the website this summer. Projects in 2019 include:
- Composting Pilot
- Green Living Certification
- Housekeeping Sustainability Tracking
- Penn Park Meadows
- Shifting Sands: Soil-less Soils
- Stormwater Collection in Street Trees
- Sustainable Solutions
- Wellness & Sustainability
- Year of Stuff
