Cool Campus Challenge: Let's Make UCLA #1!

UCLA is currently #3 in the Cool Campus Challenge! Let's make our campus #1!

Sign up for the Cool Campus Challlenge on here.

The Cool Campus Challenge is an online learning experience and competition between UC campuses running from October 6 to December 10, 2015. It’s designed to motivate and reward staff, faculty and students who take steps to reduce their carbon footprints and help the UC system reach Carbon Neutrality by 2025. It’s a big, daring goal, but we can get there if we all work together as a community to make it happen.

The Cool Campus Challenge is a partnership between the University of California and the UC Berkeley Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory. For questions or comments, please contact coolcampuschallenge@gmail.com.
