Summer Sustainability Webinar Series Graphic

This summer, the Office of Sustainability is partnering with staff around the University to bring Tufts employees a weekly webinar series on various topics of sustainability. As a Tufts employee, you can attend/watch ten webinars (8 required and 2 electives) and become a certified Eco-Ambassador, joining a group of 120 other employees at Tufts.

If you’re already an Eco-Ambassador, or just interested in attending one or two webinars, you can register for just the webinar(s) that you’d like to attend.

Register here for one webinar or more. Any Tufts employee can attend these trainings.
