The Greening the Blue tutorial is designed for UN staff, highlighting the work that's underway across the UN System to improve its environmental performance and providing helpful advice on how each individual can contribute to that effort, by calculating and reducing their own footprint. The tutorial takes the form of an animation in which we follow two UN staffers – Stick and Bean – as they overcome the challenge of being green in a typical UN office. Just follow the link below to the UN System Staff College website, where the tutorial is hosted, and follow the instructions.
Print off our 'Go green with Stick and Bean' poster and the Greening the Blue Tutorial movie poster and put them up around your desk, building... wherever you can.
