Every year Emerson honors outstanding accomplishments of students or student organizations that advance the College’s goals for sustainability at the Emerson Recognition and Achievement (ERA) Awards. The winner of the Sustainability Advancement Award is selected by a committee formed by Student Life to recognize those who are leading the way to a sustainable Emerson College. Congratulations to the 2015/2016 winner, Jade Zaroff!
Green Captains are students in the department who are interested in helping realize the vision of greener theater. These students help spread the word, advise the cast and crew on how to implement greener practices and check in on how the changes are effecting the production. Emerson is a proud member and frontrunner of this program, which launched in 2013. Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) Captains advocate for greener practices in theater programs and instruct productions on how to run in a more environmentally responsible manner.
