Speed Dating Sustainability, a new Eco Week event focused on UC staff, was co-hosted by the Community of Practice for Administrators and the Sustainability Office.
Participants were offered ‘tasters’ about what they can do help create a sustainable campus. This included learning about ‘comfort’ bikes for commuter cycling, “Fair Trade Fridays”, the Eco Office programme, and participants had the opportunity to buy a reusable cup or drink bottle.
It looked like everybody took a shine to something, and that at least one or two happy, lifelong matches were made!
Lynne de Groot, School Administrator for Biological Sciences won a hamper of Fair Trade goodies, sponsored by Office Max. A very special thanks to everybody who helped to run the event and were wonderful sustainability match-makers; Catherine Woods, Dallas Geddes (CoPA), Jeanette King (comfort bikes), Annette Gillespie (UC Health Centre and Eco Office), and Islay Rackam (Concious Consumers/Fair Trade).
