About Green Week

Since its creation in 2009, Green Week has engaged University of Mississippi students, faculty, staff, and Oxford community members in a variety of programming relating to sustainable living.Green Week logo

Green Week is a campus-wide and community event that aims to celebrate sustainability efforts in our area, inspire students, faculty, and staff and community members to forge new commitments to a more resource-conscious lifestyle, and strengthen the presence of sustainability at the University of Mississippi and in Oxford.

2017 Mission Statement: “Green Week strives to expand awareness of local and global environmental issues, increase participation in sustainable behaviors, and promote appreciation of our natural resources through educational and empowering programming. By involving a broad audience, Green Week endeavors to improve our collective conscience regarding better resource stewardship, environmental, and social sustainability.”
