The University of California is on its way to becoming the first university system to wipe out its carbon footprint by 2025, as part of President Napolitano's Carbon Neutrality Initiative. We can do it, but only if we do it together.
Participating in UC's collective effort will demonstrate UC ANR's commitment to protecting California's natural resources and building climate-resilient communities and ecosystems.
That's why I'm asking you to join in the Cool Campus Challenge and move us closer to becoming carbon-free. ANR is teaming up with UCOP for the challenge, and we'll compete on the side against the other UCOP units.
If you sign up, you'll get weekly emails with actions you can take to lower your carbon emissions in classrooms, labs, offices, homes and when traveling. As you take action, you will score points for ANR in the competition. Trophies will be awarded for locations with the most points and most points per participant.
Please take a minute to learn more and become part of the Cool Campus Challenge by registering at CoolCampusChallenge.org. Let's show the UC community that UC ANR is Cool!
