Become a Planet Blue Ambassador

About the Program

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

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. 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 pba-information@umich.edu a note if you do not already have one.
