Get Involved and Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Because ACG Cares!

Did you know that in Greece we only recycle 17% of our overall municipal waste when the average in the EU is 32%? (European Environment Agency, Nov.2016)

With the “International Campus Sustainability Month” in full swing and our new recycling bins placed in several spots around our campus, the ACG – Center of Excellence for Sustainability at the Office of Public Affairs is initiating a Waste Reduction and Recycling Campaign, in an effort to raise awareness and to guide you towards successful waste reduction and recycling daily practices!

The campaign kick-off will take place on Friday October 27th with an interactive, fun exercise at the Deree Main Corridor, from 13:00-16:00. Our awareness efforts will run throughout this academic year and will be followed by select initiatives across all campuses (Pierce, Deree, Alba). Start by testing your knowledge through a quick digital sustainability game on our website, find useful tips and guidelines and/or follow us on social media.

The Waste Reduction and Recycling campaign will be implemented in collaboration with the ACG Offices of Operations and Technical Services, Adjunct Preceptor of Environmental Studies, Maria Vitoraki, the Environmental Studies Program, the Environmental Studies Society, the Deree Student Government, and the Pierce Student Governments.

So, join us and help increase the overall percentage of recycled material! Together we can have a significant impact on and off campus!
