Green Lead: Whole Impact Training

The “Green Lead: Whole Impact Training” is a voluntary, one semester program for freshmen on the Homewood Campus. It introduces students to campus sustainability programs and initiatives, exposes them to critical concepts in behavior change and strategic project management, fosters a network of like-minded peers who can leverage each other’s potential to engage others, and equips them with the skills and knowledge needed to be effective change agents and leaders on campus, in their community and in their careers!  Through seminars, guest speakers, field trips and volunteering exercises, students will have a dynamic, fun and informative experience to learn how to make a mark on a more sustainable JHU.

We are no longer accepting applications for spring 2017.

Sessions will take place 5:30-6:30pm every Wednesday, starting February 8 and running through April 26th (excluding the week of spring break). There will also be supplemental tours, social and other outings on other days and times throughout the semester.

Ideas in Action

Think before you print.

Office paper is highly recyclable, but a lot gets wasted. Waste reduction is more cost-effective than recycling because it reduces the amount of material that needs to be collected, transported and processed.
