Take Action

Sustainability is an enormous, but attainable, undertaking. We have some big challenges when it comes to creating a safe, just space for humanity, now and for the future, but it can be accomplished collectively.

These are just a few ideas to help you start thinking about how your actions can help impact sustainability efforts on the campus, in the classroom, and throughout the community:
