How do we form teams?
The first thing to do is check that there isn’t already a team in your department! Check the communications from your department or check the above table for the 2019/20 teams list.

If you’re the first in your department, contact us. We can come and talk you through Green Impact and get you started! Spread the word around your department and we will help you as you gather together and motivate your new team!

We suggest that you try to get at least one or two other staff members on board with the aim of spreading the programme throughout your department. However, Green Impact is still possible to complete as an individual; there are some teams consisting of one staff member and a number of GIPAs.

Who can be on the team?

Anyone from your department! We have teams made up of academic staff, support staff, administrative staff, technical staff, PhD students, postgraduate students, undergraduate students, and a mixture of all of the above! The only prerequisite is that you need at least one member of staff/PhD student to be a team lead.

What is the benefit of forming teams?

By working in a team you can work together on projects to make them bigger and better. It will also be much easier for your department to fully embrace positive sustainability changes. The scheme is designed for staff to take part alongside their full-time jobs and so having more team members makes participating easier.

Forming a team also allows you to work with other members of staff who you may not normally get to work with or talk to. Teams let you find fellow staff members with shared interests in sustainability and you can get to know others in your department who care about similar issues.
