The UCSD Green New Deal movement is organizing a community of students, staff, and faculty to press the university to be a leader in addressing the climate crisis—and we’re looking for YOU to join us and help shape a series of campaigns to make it happen.
The first action is the:
UCSD CLIMATE ACTION MARCH
September 27th, 2019
11AM MARCH: STARTS FROM SILENT TREE/GEISEL LIBRARY.
12PM RALLY: AT THE TRITON STATUE/LOFT STEPS.
“Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope, but I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. I want you to act. I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if the house is on fire, because it is.”
On September 27th, we will be walking out of our workplaces and homes to demand action on the climate crisis. Join us at UC San Diego!
1) Teach your students about climate change and climate justice
2) Specify and meet decarbonization goals by 2025
3) Build a UC-wide Green New Deal
TLDR: The world isn’t waiting. Neither are we.
March for Climate Action.
Sign up for the march on Eventbrite or Facebook, share the invitation with at least ten of your UC San Diego-affiliated friends, and contact us if you have questions or want to get involved on a deeper level!
Following the Climate Action March, the first meeting of the UCSD Green New Deal movement is October 4th (and will continue to meet the first Friday of every month, in addition to direct actions and other efforts). Sign up for our email list or follow us on social media to stay up to date and get involved!

“People act like the climate crisis is going to affect people in faraway lands. No, the whole world is going to be turned upside down in ten years,” said @UCSanDiego Computer Science & Engineering Prof @RanjitJhala to @Triton_News. “I’m just horrified.” https://t.co/S3MndsYpXl
