The sustainability office led a “World Café” planning session with Resident Advisors and RA candidates during their January training yesterday. Discussions focused on student engagement and sustainability programming. We got some great input from some of our brightest student leaders and hopefully sparked some interest in residence life programming around sustainability concepts they explored.
The most prominent themes through three rounds of discussion included:
- Relatable – sustainability efforts/concepts should appeal to the interests of the individual
- Competition/Incentives – engage folks with contests and rewards
- Demonstrations – show how things work and how programs run
You can read more specific responses about student engagement and potential programs in this draft report of the event.
