NC Project Green is an opportunity to unify our efforts of sustainability in North Carolina state and local government, where we can learn from our peers and create goals to succeed in environmental stewardship initiatives. Please join the greengov listserv for North Carolina state agencies and local government employees to discuss sustainability efforts and opportunities in NC government. It is also a great way to stay informed about meetings, workshops and events.

Who is it for?
This listserv is designed to primarily serve government officials who have significant responsibility in providing and promoting sustainability in their government and community. Participation is open to anyone.

Is this listserv moderated?
No one approves the messages before they are sent out to members. However, persons who disobey the rules and expectations explicitly or implicitly set for this listserv may be removed without warning. For example, spammers or persons who advertise commercial products will be removed.

How can I post a message to the listserv?
Send your email to greengov@listserv.unc.edu. Your message will then be sent out via e-mail to all other members.

What information can/cannot be shared on the listserv?
Announcements and requests for information, passing along articles and websites to explore, and other information exchange are welcome and are likewise a critical function for the group. If you ask for information and receive many responses, it would be appreciated if you could compile the responses and post the results back to the listserv so that others will not have to ask the same question later.

Since the listserv is hosted and managed by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a public institution, all listservs are open to be viewed by any visitor. Anything you post to the listserv is considered a public document and can be viewed by the public at https://mail.unc.edu/lists/.

Commercial advertising, junk mail and political endorsements should NOT be posted to this listserv. In the unlikely event a member fails to observe these standards, they are subject to be removed from the listserv. Those making posts and responding to posts are also encouraged to remember that your postings to the list go to all members, and are viewable by the public. Consider sending an individual message when you have a personal message to send.

How can I search archived messages?
Go to http://lists.unc.edu/read/?forum=greengov and click on Search in the bar on the left, and then type in your keyword. If you wish to search on more than a single keyword, click on "advanced search" and enclose your keywords in quotations like you would in a web search engine.
