Climate Action Night
Climate Action Night at UCLA
UCLA's very first climate action night is scheduled to take place in Spring of 2022!
Volunteer mentor professors and UCLA students will work together to generate presentations on current events in the world of climate change and sustainability, from local and federal legislature to petitions to social movements to campus happenings. Attendees of the event will be able to carry out actions - be in signing a petition, contacting a representative, acting as an educated voter, or simply pledging to carry the information forward - that will have a positive impact on the current landscape of sustainability in the US and beyond.
If you're interested in participating in, supporting, or attending the event, please contact SAGE at email@example.com

SRJC Climate Action Time
As much as we at UCLA love and support the idea of a climate action night, we cannot take credit for its conception: the Santa Rosa Junior College in Santa Rosa, California, was the birthplace of CAN, led by the college's Sustainability Committee. Eager to educated students on ballot initiatives related to climate change and sustainability, the committee members put together CAN. Working with 350BayArea, the college now hosts an annual event where students from classes with a sustainability aspect to the curriculum put together presentations on legislation, ordinances, and local efforts to better our society from a sustainable perspective. In recent years, the event has expanded to include students and mentors from elementary and high schools in Sonoma County.

Want to look back on presentations from previous years? You never know, the information can still be relevant! Feel free to check out the SRJC website (PUT IN LINK AS SOON AS THEY HAVE IT UP) with their presentations from previous years, as well as the UCLA CAN archives (currently empty, as we have yet to have a CAN, but I promise there'll be something in there soon!).
