Coming Up: Climate Justice Week and Zero Waste October

October 11, 2022

Climate Justice Week will be hosted from Oct 31st - Nov 4th!

We are looking for individuals and organizations to host events, panels, or community building/art activities related to climate justice! This year's theme is monarch butterflies, community building, resilience, and adaptation.

SERC would love to support you in making your event possible. Join us in exploring community dialogue on what climate justice means to us all! 

Zero Waste October 2022!

This Fall 2022, we are continuing this tradition to celebrate zero waste during the month of October. We are calling on the campus community to join us in celebrating, highlighting and achieving zero waste through a diverse series of events and gatherings; the goal is to spread awareness about reducing overall campus waste and provide students with the tools and knowledge to do so.

As part of Zero Waste October, we will also be collaborating with SERC to support Climate Justice Week (Oct 30 - Nov 5) to recognize efforts on-campus and beyond and advocate for inclusive, equitable paths towards a racially, environmentally, and socially just future.
