About Jump



Jump is an interactive programme for all staff at the University of Reading which rewards you for behaviours that improve individual and university wide sustainability and wellbeing. 

You'll compete as part of a team to earn Green Points for your actions. There are a whole range of actions that you can earn points for under a number of different themes: 

  • Get Involved
  • Energy and Water
  • Sustainable Travel
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
  • Food and Drink
  • Health and Wellbeing

Each activity has a full description of what you'll need to do to earn Green Points - some will require a submission that you can make through the website, whilst others will invite you to report on a weekly basis.


What can you win?

There are loads of prizes available for individuals taking part in Jump as well as £200 to be donated on behalf of the top performing teams every year. You'll get the chance to win: 

  • One of two prizes for the top performing individuals (from a choice of a £20 M&S voucher, £20 Love2Shop voucher, £20 Eco Voucher, £20 Showcase Cinema Voucher or a Sustain-IT bottle and catering voucher). 
  • Every year £200 will be given to the winning team, to donate to their favourite charity (Launchpad, ReadiFood, Wildlife Trust or the British Heart Foundation).
You're also able to see how you and your team are performing on the leader boards on the homepage.
