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 Team Representatives, will measure energy and water usage and recycling rates at the Gatton residential halls. The hall that achieves the biggest energy, water and waste reductions over the course of the year will be crowned the winner and score great prizes!

Are you interested in becoming a Green the Team Representative?

If you join Green the Team, you’ll become a freshly minted Green the Team Representative, which means you get to ensure that your fellow students living in the Gatton Halls of Residence know what steps they can take to live more sustainably.

The program gives you the chance to work collaboratively with the Sustainability Office, other Property & Facilities divisions and the broader UQ community to reduce our environmental footprint and promote sustainability practices.

What’s involved?

  • You’ll promote Green the Team projects to students within your hall via face-to-face interaction, social media engagement and competitions.
  • You’ll collaborate with the other Green the Team reps, students and staff to brainstorm fun and effective strategies for the UQ community to reduce our environmental footprint and promote sustainability practices.
  • You’ll develop and implement new and innovative sustainability initiatives.
  • You’ll attend monthly meetings and monitor sustainability operations at your hall. 

What’s in it for you?

  • You’ll receive training and ongoing support throughout the year.
  • You’ll get to work with the Green the Team and Sustainability Office staff to promote a range of exciting and effective sustainability initiatives.
  • You’ll gain hands-on experience and key CV skills in communications, project management, design, sustainability and more.
  • You’ll help create positive change on campus and beyond.
  • You’ll receive an exclusive Green the Team merch bag!
