What is the Green Team?

We are University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing staff, faculty, and students who are interested in protecting and promoting the health of the environment, at all levels. Our mission is to reduce the school's environmental impact, promote environmental stewardship and foster health promotion.

The Green Team

  • implements school projects
  • provides recycling bins and educates about recycling and efficient use of resources
  • screens films related to environmental health and staffs public events to demonstrate Green Team efforts
  • encourages integration of environmental health promotion into School of Nursing administration and instruction

The Green Team meets regularly and is informally organized around projects pulled from a running To Do list, as time and school allow. The Green Team will be looking at energy use in the building and trying to find ways to reduce use/waste and simultaneously save money.
