Eco Facilitators Program

The Eco Facilitators (EF) Program is a program of the Wesleyan Sustainability Office. Eco Facilitators are peer-to-peer sustainability educators, who will be based in Bennett, Butterfield A, Butterfield C, Clark, West College, Nicholson, and 200 Church residence halls for the 2015-16 school year.  EFs work with first-year students to promote energy and water conservation, waste reduction, and other sustainable living habits through projects, campaigns, events, and activities. 

Working as an Eco Facilitator is a great opportunity to gain leadership skills, learn how to raise Wesleyan's environmental consciousness, and build a sustainable campus culture. Each EF participates in an August multi-day training, fall course, and spring meetings.  The fall student forum, Sustainable Behavior Change (ENVS 300), focuses on behavior change techniques and strategies and how to implement effective dorm-based projects.  EFs will learn about campus sustainability practices and resources, community-based social marketing, effective communication, and environmental psychology.  In the spring, EFs continue their education and outreach implementing behavior change-focused sustainability projects that encourage behavioral shifts amongst the student body.
