Would you like to be a LiveGreen Ambassador?
LiveGreen Ambassadors support UNMC/Nebraska Medicine’s mission to lead the world in creating a healthy future for all by fostering a culture of sustainability at UNMC/Nebraska Medicine, to facilitate the achievement of the Sustainability Master Plan goals. The Office of Sustainability will provide training, resources and support for all LiveGreen Ambassadors who will integrate sustainability into UNMC/Nebraska Medicine by modeling behaviors, providing colleagues with information, helping individuals use tools to implement sustainability initiatives, listening to colleagues’ ideas for sustainability on campus and conveying those ideas to the Office of Sustainability.
- What is the time commitment?
The time commitment will vary over the year. The core time commitment will be one training day each year (at Fontenelle Forrest!), supported by UNMC and Nebraska Medicine leadership, and on-going training as needed. Monthly involvement with specific topics is largely up to you. Some months you may have more interest and time to share the current project with your colleagues and listen to their ideas. Other months you may have less time and interest. The design of the LiveGreen Ambassador program allows for fluctuations in your participation based on your availability and interest.
- Do I already have to be a sustainability expert? What previous knowledge do I need to have?
No, you don’t need to be an expert and you don’t need any previous sustainability knowledge. The most important characteristic is a desire to help UNMC and NM become more sustainable. The Office of Sustainability will provide you with all the information and technical training you need to get started.
- What does the ongoing training consist of?
- One training day each year, supported by UNMC and Nebraska Medicine leadership
- On-going training as needed, typically over the lunch hour
- Occasional online training/TED talks, brief articles, and emails with information
