Environmental Facilitator Training

Are you passionate about the environment? Would you like to drive positive change in your workplace? If so, the Environment Team wants to hear from you! The Environment Team and CAPOD are currently looking for more staff volunteers to be Environmental Facilitators for their building, Unit or School. The University is aiming to become carbon neutral for energy and achieve zero waste status by 2020 and each Facilitator will play a crucial part in achieving these aims.

What will I have to do?

All our Environmental Facilitators undertake a compulsory training, which will cover all the essential information and skills that are required for the role. Once you have completed the training you will be expected to exercise the skills and knowledge you acquired through your training in your place of work by engaging with your colleagues, promoting sustainable behaviours and finding innovative ways to make your department more sustainable! In addition, you will be invited to attend regular exciting networking events for all our Environmental Facilitators which will provide an opportunity for updates, sharing case studies and joint problem solving.

To sign up to become an Environmental Facilitator, please complete this form environmental facilitator application form (Word, 20 KB). You will need the approval of your line manager, to undertake the training and activities outlined above. For informal enquiries, please contact environment@st-andrews.ac.uk.
