EcoReps is a student-run organization that works with our peers, faculty, and staff to make the University of Washington a more sustainable place by implementing green ideas. Stay up to date with what's happening with the EcoReps Facebook page.
Through a partnership with the UW Program on the Environment (PoE), students can now earn 1 or more credits for project work in EcoReps and Green Greeks. Although getting credit is great, it is only an option not a requirement...you can still be an EcoRep without choosing the for-credit option. To register for EcoReps (ENVIR 498) you will need to fill out a PoE Learning Contract and send it to Toren Elste (email@example.com) for additional instructions on how to register.
The University of Washington as an institution is a leader in sustainability, but that does not fully imply that its constituents are. It is our goal as EcoReps to foster a culture of sustainability at UW. Our current projects include Green Husky Marker, Clothing Swap, Sustainability in the Arts, 3D Bin Displays, fundraising and many more. Students will have the opportunity to work with different teams, such as the Admin Team, Outreach Team, and Social Media Team to develop leadership experience. Being part of a project usually requires a commitment of 1-5 hours per week depending on the project.
Project Development & Coordination
One of our primary goals at EcoReps is to help students with ideas to further the sustainability of UW. Visit the Project Development Page to learn more about how we can help students develop sustainability projects. In addition, we partner with the UW Sustainability office to help with ongoing programs and special projects. Project development and coordination provides students with unique professional skill building opportunities and they are great to add to resumes. You can learn more about current volunteer and internship opportunities on the Current Opportunities page. Check out our photo gallery for our past projects!
