Green the Team is a student-led engagement program focused on helping UQ’s residential halls 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 UQ's colleges.

The college 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 college's performance here (check out the yearly usage to compare reductions).

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.
