Take Action and Get Involved

Every day we have choices in the way we live and work: make your choices sustainable ones.

There are dozens of ways you can get involved in sustainability action on-campus, at home and within the community. Whether you are a staff member or student, there are Ecoversity programs to fuel on-the-ground action and collaborative problem-solving.

Contact us for information about funding, opportunities, activities and events.
