Sustainable Jeopardy.

For Wednesday's Earth Week event, GCAP created a fun interactive game of Jeopardy during tabling for students to answer sustainability-based questions of their choosing and win from a variety of house plants and succulents in different sizes! Similar to an actual game of Jeopardy, students took turns selecting hidden questions from our board for however many points of their choosing and guessing the correct answer. The higher the points of their correct answer, the larger the plants they could choose from!

 

All house plants and succulents given away were selected by our GCAP team because they are drought-tolerant and can survive in a variety of environments with little water. They also require little care and deter pests away from the home, making them perfect for reducing environmental impact on our campus!

SUCCULENT SCAVENGER HUNT.

For Wednesday's Earth Week event, GCAP created a fun interactive scavenger hunt for UCR students to explore different parts of the campus environment and collect checkpoint markers to win their very own succulents! The first few students to complete our scavenger hunt and present us with checkpoint markers received the first pick from a wide range of large monsteras to minuscule succulent pots. 

Our GCAP committee worked hard to provide as many plant prizes as possible for the Succulent Scavenger Hunt event so many students with conflicting schedules could still join in on the fun of the hunt! Student attendees enjoyed being able to see and learn more about our campus while applying critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Ultimately, everyone felt happy to celebrate the beauty of Earth!

FOOD APARTHEID IN RIVERSIDE.

Two in one! For Wednesday's second Earth Week event, GCAP hosted another educational presentation for UCR students called Learning About Food Apartheid & How It Affects Us In Riverside. Our presentation speaker Arianna Turner, a UCR alumna and food justice advocate, gave an inspiring and insightful presentation on the inequity of food options in Riverside and how the root causes are often based on race, class, and geography. Students learned how food apartheid creates a lack of nutritious and healthy food options in comparison to fast-food restaurants or chains and felt persuaded by our speaker to take community gardening and growing their own produce into consideration.

Our GCAP committee provided catered vegan burgers for the event, and even gave student attendees the option to have one with or without vegan cheese! We also raffled off a free annual pass to National Parks in California and a $75 Target gift card to several lucky attendants, as part of our effort to show appreciation for all students who showed incredible engagement plus respect for our speaker and learned something new.
