Just for Students

Just for Students

There are many pathways to exploring sustainability that are specifically for students at UC Berkeley.

Student Sustainability Forum  


The Sustainability Forum is intended to be a space for members of the campus community to become more informed about how various campus entities are working towards sustainability and to provide networking opportunities. We have so many organizations on campus implementing creative and meaningful sustainability projects. The Sustainability Forum is open to all students and intended to bring everyone up to speed with what initiatives are already well under way on our campus and what areas still need additional resources. This is also an opportunity for new students interested in sustainability to find internships and organizations to join.

Fall 2014 Student Sustainability LEADERS Forum

Join us for the Student Sustainability Leaders Forum on Wednesday, September 17, from 6:00-8:00 pm in 60 Barrows. Come learn about campus resources and what the Office of Sustainability & Energy can do for your student group and network with the 30+ other environmental groups to make a sustainable Berkeley. 

This year’s forum will look a bit different from past forums, emphasizing student group collaboration. For the past several years, the forum has been primarily focused on providing student groups with a platform to recruit freshmen. This year, however, the forum is designed as a networking opportunity with environmental student leaders in hopes of facilitating collaboration, communication, and awareness on upcoming projects and events. In addition, the Office of Sustainability & Energy will provide an overview of the many resources available to student groups including Green Certification, publicity, and funding.
