We run, support, and endorse projects that help to transform California’s universities into models of sustainability.

Statewide Student Convergences

We organize events to help students connect.  Our statewide convergences bring together hundreds of students twice a year to network, build community, share resources, attend workshops, and celebrate.  Additionally we organize Leadership Retreats, Potlucks, and Networking calls across the state.

Fossil Free California

The Fossil Free California Campaign aims to align our schools’ endowments with their missions and, with the help of partners nationwide, send a strong message to the fossil fuel industry: your time’s up.
