Greener Asheville is a UNC Asheville community engagement project that brings together all the enviornmental opportunities that our local community has to offer. We are partnered with Asheville GreenWorks to promote environmental education and accessibility to resources such as community gardens, educational organizations, and conservation centers. Our goal is to promote environmentally concious habits, diversity inclusion, and sustainability. Click on the names of each organization for more information.
The role of the internet in today's society cannot be understated, as it is our primary source for accessing knowledge. Our goal for this project was to give anyone the ability to easily access environmental resources, as it is crucial to be environmentally responsible today more than ever before. With Greener Asheville, people in the community will have a visual understanding of the multitude of environmental resources in this area alone, and what resources are closest to them. Not only that, but they will have the ability to access information regarding each environmental resource, deepening the community's understanding of its importance. This will hopefully inspire others to volunteer, or simply make small changes in their everyday lives, as they come to understand the mission of each organization. Many of the organizations we reached out to were very excited to be a part of this project, and we hope the importance of environmental effects will be better understood by those who visit Greener Asheville and are linked to the websites of all other organizations involved. Overall, we are very proud of the work we have done while working with this community to build something long-lasting and hopefully beneficial to anyone who wishes to live a greener lifestyle or make a change in the community.
