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 one of our introductory training courses. We have developed several specialized versions, but all of our trainings cover university campus sustainability goals, progress on them to date, and how each of us can help contribute.

Become an Ambassador

You can complete any of our online training courses anytime, and we also offer a group training by request. Please note: UM-Dearborn and UM-Flint have their own specialized online and group trainings as well.

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 and in the local community.
