Green Athletics Working Group

The student-athlete run Green Athletics group drives sustainability in the UVA Athletics department through education, stewardship, and leadership. Members are passionate about leading conversations surrounding sustainability and climate change in the Athletic department and encouraging small shifts in day-to-day team operations that can help UVA Athletic teams build more sustainable habits. These efforts have become increasingly important in helping student-athletes and Athletics leadership identify ways to effectively address and reduce the collective impact of UVA’s Athletics events within UVA’s larger environmental footprint. The Green Athletics group also works closely with UVA’s Office for Sustainability to help advocate for more sustainable practices and initiatives.
