UC Berkeley Office of Sustainability Travel-Free Meeting Grant Program

Via the UC Berkeley Office of Sustainability’s Bright Green Projects page.

With funding from the Climate Action Fund, the Office of Sustainability is awarding grants of up to $100 to promote travel-free meetings in hopes of reducing UC Berkeley’s business air trips by up to 10% within the next two years. Grants may be used to either 1) host a ReadyTalk Web meeting 2) host a video-conference in an ETS facility or 3) purchase a computer camera for web-conferencing. This grant program will run from March 2011 until December 2011.

To familiarize the campus with travel-free meeting options, the Office has partnered with Business Process Analysis Working Group (BPAWG), Cal People and Computer Training (CalPact), and Educational Technology Services (ETS) to host a series of training events for applications such as ReadyTalk and Skype.
