The Campus Center for the Environment believes that sustainability issues and social injustices go hand in hand. In order to combat these injustices and solve these issues, CCE cultivates a community of ecologically aware and active students through collaboration and education. The CCE is located in the MU and is open throughout the week during intern office hours.
The CCE works to promote sustainability by providing resources to make students’ events zero waste, getting students involved with the on campus gardens, promoting sustainable projects and providing informative books and magazines in an eco-library.
The CCE puts on two classes for students to learn more about sustainability and social injustices: Field Guide to Sustainable Living in Davis and the spring lecture series Education for Sustainable Living Program. If you are interested in either of these classes please check out our website for more information.
In the past, CCE published a Reorientation Guide, which was a comprehensive resource on all things sustainable in Davis that will be published again soon. At the administrative level, CCE has a great connection with the Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability. We also host the annual Sustainability Summit highlighting campus sustainability accomplishments as well as work on a variety of sustainability-related projects across campus.
Some past CCE projects include working with the Panhellenic Council to pass a bylaw requiring their philanthropy events to be zero waste, collaborating with the CoHo to sell compostable products at no cost to the sororities in order to help them achieve zero waste events, and playing an instrumental role in building the Resident Garden in Segundo to educate freshman about self-sustainability.
If you are interested in getting involved check out our website for volunteer information or come to a Green Team meeting. The Green Team holds monthly events that provide a great way to meet like-minded friends, learn about sustainability and help make the world a little greener.
Think locally, act globally.
