Climate Crisis March

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.”
—Greta Thunberg

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!

UCSD!
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.
September 27th.
March for Climate Action.

Sign up for the march on Eventbrite or Facebookshare 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!

Two and a half months ago UCSD Green New Deal jumped into action by taking part in the global climate strike demanding radical action to address the climate crisis. Last week the Collins Dictionary named 'climate strike' the word of the year!

On November 29th another global strike will be taking place. This time around UCSD is on break for Thanksgiving, so we won't be hosting our own strike, but we encourage you to find a strike near you, wherever you may have gone for Thanksgiving. Check out this map of global strikes: https://www.fridaysforfuture.org/statistics/map?c=USA&d=2019-11-29&o=all

In solidarity ✊🌏

UCSD Keep your promise to decarbonize by 2025! These are some of the people across campus who have started to show their support to this digital manifestation that is part of the UCSD Green New Deal! Make your sign, take your photo, don't forget your to use the hashtags listed below, and post! Our goal is to fill the internet with a message that will leave a digital footprint that will call attention on what was promised, so that action can start now. #ucsd #ucsdkeepyourpromise #ucsdgreennewdeal #ucsddecarbonize #localclimateaction #climatechange #climateaction

At UCSD, @Triton_News covers the Oct 4th First Friday meeting of the UCSD Green New Deal: https://t.co/DBU61POdHb

"City concerned with SDSU’s analysis of Mission Valley stadium and campus". Erm, we have a climate crisis people, and you want to build a new stadium and center needing thousands of car trips! https://t.co/LpQK8CaUmN

What a complete joke. @UCSanDiego has declared a climate emergency and said it will meet "carbon neutral" goals by 2025 but it's using gasoline-powered leaf blowers on the campus every day. @UofCalifornia please take note.

“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
