Opening Weekend from Shaun Franks

In Green Task Froce, Internship, Shaun Franks on June 19, 2013 at 3:20 PM

I’ve had some amazing experiences this past week, OSF connects people from all walks of life and I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of these amazing people. I’m very surprised by how many people are in interested in sustainability. I’ve already had many conversations where I introduce myself as the green task force intern and people immediately begin telling me what they’ve done in their departments or ideas they have to improve them.

It’s very clear that I need to meet with Sharifa and begin discussing next steps. I’ve already begun working with Alison Carey on a climate change survey from Yale that can be distributed throughout OSF staff, interns, and volunteers. I think we should be ready to get the survey out as soon as the green task force meets again. I’d also like to see the Green Show utilized as a place to showcase OSF’s value of environmental responsibility. I’ll also be working with Katie Gomez on getting the agenda prepared for the next green task force meeting as well as establishing a more accessible time and place for all company members.

I’d really like to schedule a meeting with Cynthia Rider a Bill Rauch in order to see what direction they’d like to see the green task force take. A “grass-roots” approach to environmental responsibility is vital to implementing change within an organization but without “grass top” support it’s harder to incorporate.
