    Poster from EcoJam 2014

    UH and CSB Building Campaigns

    This tool is a visualization of the “What Color is Your Sustainability” quiz.

    In Spring 2014, employees from University Hall and the Clinical Sciences Building, as well as participants at EcoJam 2014, were given the quiz.

    After completing the quiz, each person chose the sticker that corresponded to their “color,” which represents the facet of sustainability that they identify with the most. Each person wrote their name and department/major on the sticker and placed it on the poster.
    This type of visualization enables the viewer to see trends in the “colors” of sustainability that people from each department/major identify with.

    Poster example

    Do a Sustainability Campaign in Your Building

    This tool is composed of a poster and stickers. Here are some Guidelines:

    1. Give some thought to the size that you print the poster. Consider: How many people are in your target group? How many do you want to participate?

    2. Hang the poster in a public space where everyone will be able to see it

    3. Distribute the stickers to your coworkers, fellow students, etc., along with instructions.

    Now you can watch the poster fill up with the names of familiar people and get to know how everyone can live sustainably and create a sense of community within your group!
