Geo Green Team

What is the Geo Green Team?

As part of UF’s ongoing sustainability pledge, the Geo Green Team was set up in 2014 to transform the Department of Geological Sciences into one of the most sustainable departments on campus.

Who are we?

The Geo Green Team is one of UF’s largest sustainability groups, and is made up of more than 20 people who work in our Department, with individuals representing the undergrad, postgrad, post doc and faculty communities.

What do we do?

The Geo Green Team is actively working to facilitate positive changes in workplace behavior and infrastructure to reduce the Department’s electricity use and waste production.

Examples of ongoing projects include:

  • provision of recycling points throughout Williamson Hall
  • providing a green behavior guide for all current and new employees
  • installing motion sensors for lighting in Williamson Hall
  • building a departmental transport share scheme for events off-campus

We are also working with other Green Teams across campus to build a UF sustainability network, and to explore campus-wide ideas for green changes, such as composting and inter-department competitions.

Do you have any suggestions or would you like to find out more about the Geo Green Team?

Email us at, and check out our notice board on the second floor of Williamson Hall for more information about our Department’s progress and any upcoming activities.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
