We provide numerous resources for campus engagement. Assistance with the creation of a campus club for the environment, a student government association committee, or even support in getting guest speakers for an event.
Connections to Local Organizations
Members of our Student Network will be able to access a wealth of resources for community engagement. We can connect students to their local Conservation Advisory Committee, or other local environmental organizations.
Members of our student network are given a first-hand experience in communication with legislators for policies in environmental reform. We provide students with platforms to address the County Board of Legislators and State Legislature.
There is a global movement occurring among students in the advocacy of our climate. From Europe, to Africa, and South America we are witnessing numerous students take a stand for climate change. This network is a chance for you to get involved in a global movement for our ecological future.
