SEAC’s Outreach Campaign has launched several exciting new projects this year to better integrate SEAC and the environmental issues we advocate into the rest of the campus and Williamsburg community.
“House-by-House Greenings in Williamsburg
- In conjunction with the Greening Williamsburg Coalition, SEAC has launched a “House-by-House Greening” service project that will be offered to the Williamsburg community in the coming months. Members of the Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) have been recently trained in doing home sustainability assessments, and will be volunteering their services to put this knowledge to work by “greening” the home of anyone who would like to sign-up! The service is completely free of charge, and we do not want there to be any monetary road blocks to being environmentally conscious. However, if you feel so inspired, we will accept donations to William and Mary SEAC. I would like to emphasize that this donation would be completely optional and is not in any way central to our mission. Hopefully, this will serve as an opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint in Williamsburg, educate people about sustainability issues, and provide an opportunity for students of the College to interact with the larger Williamsburg community.If you would like to sign up for this service OR you want to become a member of the ‘Green Squad’ , all you have to do is send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org OR call (201)925-8300
Greek Life Outreach
- SEAC has been attempting to reach out the Greek community by initiating a recycling competition to culminate on Blowout between the sororities and fraternities on campus. If you belong to a sorority or fraternity and want to get started on making this competition a reality or you just want to get more involved with green issues on campus, email Emily Sample at email@example.com or Yael Gilboa at firstname.lastname@example.org to get active and raise awareness on our campus!
- We are working on bringing the farmer’s market to campus for a day to make local food options more accessible to our campus. We hope to bring all of the vendors on campus during Earth Week in the spring. If this is an issue about which you are passionate, please contact Hannah Debelius at email@example.com to help.
- Finally, one of the most important components of Outreach is to build a true coalition across campus, and eventually across the entire Williamsburg community. In the coming months we hope to develop a working partnership to more and more organizations on the Williams and Mary Campus. This project is in its very early stages, but there will be much more news about it very soon. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to help develop and expand the scope of our impact on campus.”
