The Staff & Faculty Eco-Reps Program is a peer education program that provides the tools to improve the environmental sustainability of Penn offices and labs. There are 3 volunteer Co-Chairs that help guide the program in addition to our office staff:
Marie-Louise Faber, EHRS
Jennifer Mishkin, PSOM
Judy Tjiattas, Grad Division SAS
Designed to improve environmental awareness and behavior change, the program builds knowledge and leadership across Penn's Schools and Centers by empowering individuals to champion the goals outlined in the Penn Climate Action Plan.
Participating staff volunteers meet monthly to share best sustainable practices between departments, and attend brief trainings by the Green Campus Partnership on sustainability topics. Eco-Reps then implement change spreading awareness of important sustainability issues and conservation strategies in their respective offices and departments through sustainability projects, events, and creative informational campaigns.
