The Green Dorm Initiative (GDI) is the annual competition that encourages Rice students, staff, faculty, and administrators to adopt sustainable lifestyles and to then implement them on campus. Held during Feburary, GDI is a two-week event hosted by the Rice University EcoReps that targets different green topics around campus every day. Competitors can participate in as many days as they like, but the more days they participate, the more prizes they will win!
This year from February 18th to March 1st. Weekly themes are transportation and pollution -- every weekday an email newsletter will be sent with information about that day's topic and a challenge and/or event for the day. At the end of each week there will be a quiz for you to take about the email content and to report what challenges you did and events you went to. Participation can be as little or as much as you please -- everyone has a chance of winning prizes!
