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:
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. Throughout the year, we'll be taking part in events and campaigns with even more opportunities to take part and earn points.
Each month there are 2 x £20 vouchers up for grabs for the two people who have earned the most Green Points that month. This means that, no matter when you've joined Jump, everyone has a chance to win!
This is all part of the University's 2020-2026 Environmental Sustainability Strategy - and we want you to get involved! We know that small actions add up to make a big difference and that everyone has their part to play in addressing the Climate Emergency. That means saving energy and water where we can, connecting with our natural world, opting for active travel, or thinking about the impact of our diet.
Whether you're working remotely or in the office, we've got activities for everyone to take part in. Keep an eye out for our 'Home Working' icon on activities that have been upgraded for working from home.
