Climate justice and sustainability

Climate justice and sustainability 

We're delighted to announce that we have partnered up with the university's sustainability team to bring sustainability and climate justice to the heart of campus! This UCB Guild campaign will focus on working with the University directly to help inform and challenge the University's sustainability strategy and to support initiatives that tackle climate degradation, both locally, nationally, and internationally. 

 

What is sustainability?

According to the 1987 UN Burndtland Commission, sustainability is defined as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs". As a Students' Union, we believe that the real challenge is to address the unevenness of the pursuit of needs and its discrepancies in a global world. This means tackling the consumption, waste, and general pollution that our education systems produce on a day-to-day basis. 

 

Why should I get involved?

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved and shape the Guild's climate justice campaign in tackling and holding the University accountable for its sustainability strategy. Not only that, we would love to hear from you on some of your ideas, projects, and initiatives that you would like to bring to the Students Union and the type of work you would like us to focus on. Think BIG!
