Carbon Slam: Deadline April 10th

The University of California is sponsoring a UC-wide Carbon Slam event on May 23rd at Xerox PARC in Silicon Valley.

This system-wide event will bring students from all 10 University of California campuses to present their climate change science and solution research in 3-minute pitches and posters in a live competition before a panel of esteemed judges and guests for a chance to win cash prizes.

This event will highlight the important work that UC students and faculty are doing to understand the impacts of climate change and to develop new innovations, practices and policies that can help mitigate those impacts.

UC students and teams interested in being selected to attend and compete in the Carbon Slam event can submit their application through the system-wide portal at carbonslam.org. The deadline to apply is April 10th.

Anyone with questions with questions about the application, initiative or live event can contact Sue Carter at carbon-slam [at] ucsc [dot] edu. 

This event is sponsored by the Faculty Engagement and Education working group of the Global Climate Leadership Council as part of the University of California President’s Climate Neutrality Initiative.
