Campaign to recognize individual action on environment

A campaign to spread awareness of green acts and recognize individual actions will highlight the collective efforts of the University community towards a more sustainable campus, says UWindsor sustainability officer Nadia Harduar.

She invites students, faculty, and staff to snap and share a photo of themselves or a colleague engaging in sustainability activities: cycling, sorting waste, using a reusable mug or bottle, gardening, upcycling materials, or any other action showing compassion for the planet or people.

“Capture those moments that demonstrate responsible stewardship of our campus,” says Harduar. “Whether it’s composting or choosing to take the stairs, they’re worth celebrating.”

The #CaughtGreenHanded campaign will run through Sustainability Month, with a prize draw for entries from UWindsor students, staff, or faculty members.

To participate:

  • upload your photo or story to Instagram,
  • use the hashtags #CaughtGreenHanded and #uwindsor, and
  • tag @ScienceUWindsor.

Those without social media accounts may submit a photo through the #CaughtGreenHanded Google form.
