Addressing Climate Change
Meaningful Action

The Climate Action Corps Summer Fellowship pilot program was recently launched by California Volunteers.  The Office of Sustainability was fortunate to have two fellows join us for the summer thanks to a grant provided by Bay Area Community Resources and LA Works. The overall goal of the Climate Action Corps is to address climate change, create more equitable communities, and assist the fellows in professional development. Due to the pandemic, our fellows worked remotely on the projects highlighted below. 

Quick Links

Turf Removal Project

The fellows looked at the existing turf area on campus to identify areas that could be adapted to reduce water utilization.

Gardening Guide

The fellows created a guide to assist students who would like to grow a garden on campus.

GHG Inventory

The fellows looked closely at the effect our campus GHG emissions have on climate change and human health.
