From Emily Murphy ’18:
The Wesleyan Sustainability Office is seeking frosh and sophomores to serve as Eco Facilitators for the 2017-2018 school year! The EcoFacilitators are a group of about 15 students who work closely with freshman dorms to promote sustainable and environmentally-friendly lifestyles on campus within the context of global climate change and social inequality.
In Spring 2017, EFs will enroll in a semester-long student forum focused on strategies for encouraging sustainable behaviors. Throughout the fall and spring of the 2017-2018 school year, EFs will be paid to apply their ideas through these strategies in dorms, and work with RAs to account for unequal access to resources while promoting sustainable living. Working as an EcoFacilitator is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills and take part in building a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive campus community.
Applications are due by 11:59 PM on Monday, November 21st and are on Wesleyan’s Office of Sustainability website. There will also be an info session on Monday Nov 14th in Usdan 108 at 12:15 pm. More information, including an FAQ is available at bit.ly/EFs2017. Please email ecofacilitators[at]wesleyan[dot]edu with any questions!
Date: Monday, November 14
Time: 12:15-1 PM
Place: Usdan 108
