Get involved and earn rewards

Go to Strathclyde Team Jump Platform

Sustainable Strathclyde's Team Jump is a new engagement programme and first of its kind in Scotland that rewards Strathclyde employees for taking part in a range of sustainability and wellbeing related actions. There are prizes for best teams and individuals, including vouchers and donations to charities. 

Almost 300 staff were involved in a very successful Pilot which ran 2018-2019. One of the top points earners said:

"Jump made me more aware of my impact on the environment and provided me with tips on health, recycling and sustainability. It was fun and engaging and brought out my competitive streak I didn't know I had."

Last year through Jump, Strathclyde staff collectively:

  • burned 1,708,548 calories (that's 917 pizza slices)
  • saved 6905 disposable cups
  • avoided the emission of nearly 50 tonns of CO2 which is taking the university much closer to meeting our emissions reduction targets.

JUMP 2019 launched in October. Get in touch with sustainability@strath.ac.uk if you're interested in finding out more about the programme. Opportunity to take part is available to all University staff and PG students with a @strath.ac.uk email address, located at all University sites.    

How does it work?

Once you've activated your account, you can start taking part in the activities to earn Green Points and win great prizes!

Jump has six sustainability & wellbeing themes where staff can check out activities they want to participate in and earn points for doing so:

  • energy and water
  • travel
  • resources
  • engagement
  • wellbeing
  • lifestyle

Teams are competing against other teams and individual staff also compete against their colleagues for Green Points and rewards. Staff and teams earn top positions in the leaderboard and contribute to the sustainability and wellbeing aspirations by submitting actions relevant to them.

There are plenty of activities to pick from including active travel, using your KeepCup, attending an event or reporting your exercise, and many more. Taking part in each activity earns participants Green Points, getting them closer to winning prizes.
