TropEco Awards Winner

TropEco Sustainability Awards 2016

TropEco recently celebrated the sustainability achievements of the JCU community with the sixth annual TropEco Awards ceremony held at the Townsville and Cairns campuses. 

This year there were 36 nominations across eight award categories. Twenty-three TropEco Interns were also recognised for their volunteer work in 2016: in total, they completed over 500 hours of volunteer work this year. 

Winner, Leadership and Governance Award

As a part of his TropEco Internship, Richard Webb has developed a comprehensive and interactive sustainability induction module for JCU. The module will allow all staff and students at JCU to interact with and understand the concepts of sustainability, how they are used and demonstrated at JCU and what individuals can do to ensure that they are behaving in a sustainable manner. 

Richard’s work will ensure there is a cohesive culture of sustainability and that we are all working towards a common goal for the future. The modules are interactive and engaging, rather than another tick list induction that doesn't necessarily inspire thought and action.

Richard is a Student Mentor Engagement Officer for Learning, Teaching and Student Engagement, based in Cairns.

The full list of awardees can be found on the TropEco website.
