University of St Thomas Green Team
UST Green Team
University of St. Thomas
St. Paul, MN
The Green Team exists to challenge St. Thomas to be a more ecologically sound campus and to raise environmental awareness within our community, both on and off campus. The group each semester sponsors the Mississippi River Clean-up in cooperation with the DNR Adopt-a-River program. It also regularly organizes educational activities, which have included the Earth Week Symposium, camp outs and yearly field trips to the Steger Wilderness Center in northern Minnesota and the Anathoth Community Farm, a Luck, Wisconsin, commune focused on maintaining a negative carbon footprint.
The Green Team strives to create a more sustainable and environmentally-conscious UST community. The Green Team aims at promoting sustainability at UST through educating the community about environmental and social justice issues and engaging the community in sustainable and interactive projects.
The Green Team welcomes every student to join in our cause of promoting sustainability and environmental awareness.
