The Sustainability Community of Practice (CoP) is a space for staff and faculty to discuss ideas, concerns, successes, frustrations, and lessons about sustainability on the UW–Madison campus and in their personal lives. Whether they hail from a lab, an office, or the classroom, Sustainability CoP members share a passion for improving the impact of their work-lives and work-spaces on the world around them.
If you are interested in joining the Sustainability CoP or attending any of our information sharing and networking events please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CoP has given me an opportunity to see what the possibilities are for advancing sustainability, the ability to talk to people who are grappling with the same challenges I am, and the benefit of access to campus experts.Member Testimonial
What does the Sustainability CoP look like?
As a Community of Practice:
- Our HOME (sponsor) is the Office of Sustainability.
- Our DOMAIN (shared interest) is in sharing frustrations, concerns, ideas, and solutions about sustainability, as well as exploring, piloting, and/or pushing for more sustainability-supporting actions within our workplaces at UW–Madison.
- Our COMMUNITY is comprised specifically of staff and faculty at UW–Madison who have a passion for sustainability and a desire to influence best practices in our work units. Sustainability need not be a formal part of our roles (but can be).
- Our PRACTICE is to increase awareness of sustainability and implementation sustainability-supporting practices.
