Green the Team is a student-led engagement program focused on helping UQ’s Gatton Halls of Residence become more environmentally active, aware and alert! 

Throughout the year, the Sustainability Office, in partnership with Green Res Reps, will measure energy and water usage and recycling rates at the Gatton Halls.

The Hall that achieves the biggest energy reductions over the course of the year (compared to last year) will be crowned the winner and score great prizes!

Track your Halls performance here (check out the yearly usage to compare your Halls' reduction).

Green Sprint competitions will also be held throughout the year for waste, water and energy reductions. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for details.
