Outreach Team Tabling at the Farmers Market wearing SustainableUMD shirts

SustainableUMD Outreach Ambassadors

The Sustainability Outreach Team is a group of student SustainableUMD Ambassadors promoting a culture of sustainability at UMD. The Outreach Team has also been known as the LEAF team: Lead, Educate, Act, Facilitate!  Ambassadors receive intensive and ongoing training in sustainability, leadership, and outreach.

Invite the Outreach Team to bring sustainability tabling, activities, and workshops to your group, team, or area! 

Research shows peer-to-peer and face-to-face outreach is the most effective, and our outreach programs are designed around the science of behavior change and community-based social marketing.  

SustainableUMD Ambassadors promote sustainability: 

  • Encourage students to commit to sustainable choices with the Green Terp Program
  • Inspire and empower students on ways to take action on sustainability
  • Promote sustainability programs and resources to the student body
  • Identify barriers to sustainable actions and habits, and implement solutions 

Being part of this team allows me to exude my enthusiasm for sustainability in the hopes of sprouting enthusiasm in others in the UMD community.”- Andrea, LEAF Team Lead
