The University of Colorado Environmental Center Energy & Climate Justice Program works to create a deeper understanding in the CU community about how our energy and water use directly relates to climate change and social justice issues... And what we can do about it. We employ peer-to-peer education about climate change, climate justice, water, air, food justice, agricultural practices and how to efficiently conserve energy on and off-campus. By educating each other, we are able to increase awareness and build interest in finding and working on solutions.
Here are some of the programs under the Energy & Climate Justice umbrella:
- Eco-Social Justice Leadership Program (Certificate program)
- EcoBuffs home upgrade services
- Energy Outreach (events & education)
- Eco-Social Justice Team (events & education)
- Green Greeks
- Energy Green Teams
- Carbon Offsets & Water Certificates
- FLOWS (Foundations for Leaders Organizing on Water and Sustainability)
- Just Transition Collaborative
