Planet Blue Ambassador

Are you interested in campus sustainability? The Planet Blue Ambassador program is the entry point to sustainability at U-M. Our goal is to empower you with the information and resources you need to live, work, learn, and play sustainably.

The Training

Any U-M faculty member, staff, student, or alumnus can become an Ambassador by completing our introductory training. The training covers our campus sustainability goals, our progress on them to date, and how each of us can help contribute.

Become an Ambassador

You can complete the training online anytime, and we also offer a group training by request. Please note: you need a University of Michigan email to access the online training, so send a note if you do not already have one.

Fostering A Culture Of Sustainability

Once you complete the training, there is no required time commitment to be an Ambassador. That being said, we hope you will be inspired to lead by example and help others practice sustainable behaviors! All Ambassadors receive access to additional resources including our monthly e-newsletter, our blog, and our online resource toolkit, as well as events, workshops, tours, volunteer opportunities, and more.

Resource Toolkit

This toolkit is for U-M students, staff, and faculty who would like to advance sustainability in their day-to-day work and lives. It is meant to bring together the vast number of sustainability resources that are available across U-M’s three campuses and in the local community. See below for tips on how to filter and search the toolkit.
