AWIS-GCH Goes Green

AWIS-GCH Goes Green initiative was formulated to inspire a more sustainable future within the Golf Coast- Houston region. As the demand for climate action grows, AWIS-GCH is here to support our members and surrounding community as we all take the step to go green. Our yearlong program has been broken down into four (3-month) series, each dedicated to a significant environmental issue we face today.

1. Green During COVID-19 (October 2020 – December 2020)
2. Eliminating Food Waste (January 2021 – March 2021)
3. Oceans & Plastics (April 2021 – June 2021)
4. Energy Efficient You (July 2021 – September 2021)

Our Green Team has created a four-part structure to each series. Through this structure, we aim to:

1. Provide education on the environmental issue of focus (LEARN – What the Experts are Saying)
2. Shine light on Women in STEM using their careers to tackle these issues (TALK – Green Science Talks)
3. Encourage our members to green their homes (DO AT HOME – DIY Green)
4. Provide the tools to build a more sustainable community together (VOLUNTEER – Make Houston Green)

We look forward to bringing our members along on this exciting journey. GO GREEN!
