Chancellor Announces Sustainability Challenge
On May 21st, students, staff, faculty, and community members gathered in the Stevenson Event Center for the 5th Annual UCSC End of the Year Sustainability Celebration. While enjoying food from UCSC Catering, students spoke with attendees about their project posters that represented the work they have done this year.
Throughout the event, there were also six presentations from students, staff, faculty, and community leaders about the sustainability work that has happened on and off campus. Presentations included the Green Labs program, the Bike Transit Planning Team, Real Food, the Green Wharf, and more!
After presentations, the People's Bike Generator was available for anyone to ride and power music. Lacey Raak, UCSC Sustainability Director, took it for a stationary spin, as did Sarah Latham, Vice Chancellor for Business and Administrative Services, and John Barnes, Campus Architect. To see photos from this event and read the project posters that were submitted, view our Facebook album here.
