Be proud to be green!

Posted on September 11, 2014

Starting Wednesday, September 10, Vancouver Community College (VCC) will be holding a Random Acts of Green contest, encouraging students, staff and faculty to capture themselves and others getting caught in an act of green.

VCC’s new president, Dr. Peter Nunoda was recently caught in the act of using a re-usable coffee mug.
"This is a small act that over time can help our environment in big ways", says Dr. Nunoda.


Catch your teachers, students, staff members and colleauges, then tweet the photo to @greenvcc or post to VCC’s sustainability Facebook page using #VCCActsofGreen to be entered into a weekly prize draw. The contest will run from Wednesday, September 10 to Monday, October 13.

Acts of green can be anything from:

  • Turning off the lights
  • Recycling
  • Taking transit or cycling to one of the two VCC campuses
  • Using a re-usable coffee mug
  • Printing less
  • Using less paper

These random acts of green add up. Be part of the movement and submit your act of green today! 


Contest rules:

Prizes valued at over $500, and include VCC swag bags, gift certificates to JJ’s, the bookstore and MEC. Prizes will be randomly drawn each week with new entries from that week; must have a valid VCC ID to claim your prize. Liking or following the VCC sustainability Facebook or Twitter earns an additional entry for that week. The person in the photo is the one entered to win the prize, and will be emailed at their VCC email if they are not tagged with a social media account. Prize winners with a social media account will be announced on the VCC sustainability Twitter and Facebook pages, and contacted through personal message.
