GEAR (Getting Environmental Attitudes Rolling) is a group of volunteers who work throughout Georgian College and Barrie to raise awareness and provide solutions for environmental issues.
On campus, the group actively supports and promotes sustainability practices and in the community, and offers chances for everyone who counts themselves a part of this community to get involved!
GEAR tries to stay as active as possible and welcomes new members to help keep the organization moving as it grows and changes, at any one of the campuses.
In the past, the group has been involved with a number of initiatives including:
- Coffee Booth mornings: Where the group serves Fair Trade Coffee once a week for those who bring a reuseable mug
- Green Screens: Weekly/Monthly screenings of environmentally related movies/documentaries
- Lib LEAD: Public Issue Discussions that focus on specific environmental issues
- Earth Day Cleanup: On campus and at Little Lake
- Recyclables Drop Off: Weekly collection/drop off of unusual recyclable items (light bulbs, batteries, ink cartridges, and cell phones)
