Going paperless


School of Environment and Sustainability (SES) staff and faculty are committed to going paperless and began this process at the beginning of this fiscal year. Although previously committed to the 4rs of reduction, reuse, recycling and recovery, we decided to introduce another based on student feedback—refuse. Thus, we will be trying, wherever possible, to go paperless at a minimum in our own office use, and ideally in the classroom. It will be easier on-line, as we can disseminate our educational materials electronically but more difficult in the classroom, as many professors are dependent on ’colourful sticky papers’ and ‘flip chart’ materials. If anyone has ideas about how we can improve our internal office procedures and novel ways of teaching without paper, please do share with us.
