Congratulations to the Green Impact team at MGA Caulfield who won the 2022 Green Impact Cup.
This year, 14 teams across Australia, NZ and South East Asia entered the Green Impact Cup and collectively completed a whopping 846 sustainable actions from the Green Impact toolkit in just three weeks.
Team MGA Caulfield -Serena Ang, Casey Chen, Maggie Scott, Sarah Murphy and Ying Xu- won the cup with 80 completed sustainability actions. This was a significant increase on the 35 actions they completed to win the Week 1 challenge, which resulted in 35 native trees planted in MGA Caulfield’s name by Global Deforestation project, One Tree Planted.
The MGA would like to give a special shout-out to our fellow Monash team and runners-up, the Monash Student Association (MSA), who completed an impressive 65 sustainability actions. It’s great to see that student organisations of Monash University are taking action towards a sustainable future.
As the overall winners of the Green Impact Cup, MGA Caulfield won ultimate bragging rights and a prize pack from a variety of sustainability partners.
Our actions don’t stop there! Stay tuned for more info about MGA Sustainability Week, which will take place in October 2022.
What is Green Impact?
Green Impact is a program that encourages and supports staff and students in tertiary settings to make tangible interventions for environmental sustainability.
The program originated in the UK over ten years ago and, led by Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability (ACTS), it has been running for over four years across participating Australian and New Zealand tertiary campuses. Green Impact provides a platform on which staff or students at Monash University can form workplace and student community teams. This includes an online Green Impact toolkit listing a variety of sustainable actions that participants can complete and track.
The main idea of the program is to help raise awareness of sustainability and take direct positive action within workplaces and student spaces!
If you are a Monash staff member or student who would like to participate, find out more on the Green Impact page on the Monash University website.
