Guest post from Scottee Cantrell at the Nicholas School of Environment:
If you could make the environment better, what would you do? Can you show us in three words? That’s the challenge posed by a new, nationwide video contest, “Green in 3,” sponsored by Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment that starts today. The 15 best videos will each be awarded a $500 prize.
The contest, which runs through April, asks members of the public to suggest a simple, three-word approach to greener living – “Join a carpool,” “Use rain barrels,” ”Cuddle for warmth” – and capture it with a digital camera, cell phone or Webcam. Ideas can be large or small, serious or silly.
Dean William L. Chameides says: The contest is part of our continuing efforts to show that although environmental challenges are complex, we can all take steps to help solve them and forge a sustainable future. The contest is open to anyone 18 years or older in the U.S. and D.C. and Canada (excluding Quebec).
