Champion Forum: Well-Being and Going GreenApril is Earth Month (Earth Day is April 22) and many engineering firms have sensitivity to environmental impact and ecology. Some firms are even getting “Green” certified. Whether or not you follow these practices, having a sense of connection to nature can be a significant part of well-being. This includes everything from walking outside to gardening to participating in community clean ups. This Champion Forum will help champions make connections between the three areas of well-being and environmental awareness. First, as noted, research suggests that having a connection to nature enhances well-being. Second, the culture of many engineering firms often includes some sensitivity to environmental awareness and good stewardship. Third, as part of your wellness programs there are things you can do to help foster a healthy attitude toward “going green” and its relationship to health. If you-or anyone in your firm-has an interest in this, we welcome their input in the forum.
