Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus
The Student Environmental Center produces a new Blueprint for a Sustainable Campus each year. We began issuing this document in 2001. The purpose of the Blueprint is to codify students' unique visions for how the UC Santa Cruz campus should become more sustainable. The Blueprint sets a direction for student organizing. Students identify visions (and actions) for a more sustainable campus during events called Blueprint Breakouts.
Past Blueprints and visions helped shape campus sustainability. For example, the Walk to Class Challenge, Bike Library and Sustainability Minor were all visions identified in past Blueprints. Now, they exist! In general, the Student Environmental Center and past student organizers have helped institutionalize sustainable practices and values on campus.
The 2016-2017 Blueprint also provides resources and information on specific sustainability topics. We hope this document will be helpful to future SEC members and other student organizers.
To involve yourself in the Blueprint creation process, start by attending Blueprint Breakouts during Winter quarter. Breakouts are usually held on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30pm. Check this website for location and details. For more information on how to get involved during other parts of the year, email: email@example.com.
