In May and June, laboratory-based faculty, researchers and staff on campus are competing for points in a variety of eco-friendly challenges in the first-ever Green Research Challenge.
Anyone who works in a lab and has a valid UBC CWL is invited to participate in the challenge. Challenge activities vary — from reviewing climate change documentaries, to assessing energy use in a lab. All activities present an opportunity to learn more about on-campus laboratory solid and hazardous waste programs, water and energy reduction and green purchasing options.
Prizes are given out each week for participating. A grand prize will also be awarded to the team with the most points at the end of the challenge.
