We Are Green Campus Action Plan!
We're a committee of undergraduate students committed to increasing sustainability on campus. We organize activities and events that promote and educate our student body about sustainable practices. Learn more about our mission, history, and get to know us down below!
The Green Campus Action Plan aims to provide undergraduate students with the financial resources to pursue sustainability-based projects on the University of California, Riverside campus. By taking ownership of our impact on the planet and our community, we - as students - can begin to tackle climate and sustainability issues at a college level and apply those lessons throughout our future careers.
The Green Campus Action Plan was born from a student's desire to take sustainability issues into their own hands. With the support of fellow students and staff, the GCAP $2.50 Referendum was established and voted on by the student body government ASUCR. GCAP is now over 13 years old and growing.
In our 13+ years as a committee, GCAP has awarded UCR students over $700k in grant funding to pursue sustainability work and projects on campus. However, our impact does not stop there. Through our educational and outreach programs, we have been able to educate and inform tens of thousands of students on how to do their part in keeping UCR, our community, and the planet green.
While GCAP acknowledges that change needs to come from the government and corporations, we also understand that we are in a unique position to help our students, especially the future executives and lawmakers of the world, recognize that immediate change needs to occur. By educating students on sustainable climate action, we hope our efforts can help secure our planet's environmental viability.
