From Professor Haddad’s Environmental Politics and Democratization seminar (in conjunction with the Sustainability Office) comes this campus-wide energy saving contest! If you participate, you’ll help save energy AND money for financial aid (and maybe win some additional cool prizes):
Wesleyan is engaging in an exciting collaboration with a new social networking company called JouleBug. JouleBug is an IT company aimed at using social networking technology to help make it fun and easy to develop a culture of sustainability in our community.
The first phase of this collaboration will begin with a campus-wide contest led by Prof. Haddad’s Environmental Politics and Democratization seminar (GOVT/EAST/ENVS 304) in conjunction with the Sustainability Office. The contest will run from Monday Nov. 11th through Sunday November 24th. Teams must be created by midnight on November 10 and can be made up of anyone from the Wesleyan community. Team captains can sign their teams up here. Individuals can also participate without a team just by getting the JouleBug app and using it on campus.
The contest is designed to help our Wesleyan community have fun while also increasing our awareness of everyday sustainability actions we can take. Please note: All residential energy savings generated through our efforts will result in dollar-for-dollar contributions to financial aid (See President Roth’s blog).
