Our Commitment

Penn President Amy Gutmann introduces Climate Action Plan 2.0, which serves as Penn’s blueprint for environmental excellence.


The Athletics Eco-Reps Program

Athletics Eco-Reps is a student environmental leadership program that promotes sustainable lifestyles across Penn’s Athletics communities.  Representatives support the University’s Climate Action Plan through peer education, projects, and outreach events.  Eco-Reps strive to be constant models of environmental consciousness and challenge their peers to adopt a culture of sustainability.

The Athletics Eco-Reps program is open to all student athletes, and selected students will work together as a group throughout the year.

The Eco-Reps program is managed by sustainability staff in Facilities and Real Estate Services and is part of Penn’s Green Campus Partnership, a collection of students, staff, and faculty throughout the University promoting better environmental practices and policy.


We are currently seeking 3 - 4 additional applications for 2014-15 Athletics Eco-Reps!  Applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis and will close once our group is full.  Please send questions to Julian Goresko at goresko@upenn.edu or Dan Schupsky at dschup@upenn.edu.
