Live More Sustainably - Join an Eco-Team
What is an Eco-Team?
EcoTeams are small groups of people who meet together to learn about sustainability. There is usually a facilitator and a guidebook. The group may discuss changes we can make at the individual, local, and greater community levels. Any neighborhood, faith-based, workplace, friends or other groups can create an EcoTeam.
What doe Eco-Teams Do?
Most EcoTeams will meet 4-6 times over a period of two to four months. Once you get the first meeting and location set up, the group can decide from there. The core topics covered should be water, waste, energy, and transportation, with additional topics the group can decide on such as food, consumption, and local resilience. Participants will also be invited to meet other sustainability leaders and to attend local discussion panels, workshops and field trips in our community. At the end of the core topics discussion, each EcoTeam participant will be recognized for their completion and encouraged to keep the conversation going!
Our goal is to form a supportive peer network for individual, group and community efforts. Together we can work towards social, economic and environmental sustainability -- for ourselves and future generations. EcoTeams exemplify grassroots sustainability at its best.
How Can You Be a Part?
It's easy to get started. Get a group together and decide a location. Decide on a facilitator (you don't have to be an expert, you just keep the conversation going), and get the Green Living Handbook at the library, borrow from Sustainable Tallahassee's Eco-Team Coordinator, or purchase your own online.
