The Sustainability Update

We miss you and are wishing you health, comfort, and happiness!

Though we may all not be physically together on campus this spring quarter, you can still be involved with sustainability at SCU. This month's newsletter contains ways you can take action from home throughout the month of April. Please stay tuned for more updates on our virtual programming.

Ways to Participate From Home
#1. Say Yes to the Earth Day EcoChallenge (April 1-30)

Join the SCU Mission Sustainable team and commit to sustainability actions for the month of April.

#2. Tune into tUrn (April 20-24)

This spring, tUrn will be online and invites everyone to lean into the climate crisis. This is a time and space to learn, contemplate, converse and activate new behaviors and actions.

#3. Sign Up as a Sustainability Liaison

By serving as a liaison for your personal and/or professional network, you'll be educating your peers, receiving sustainability news firsthand, and contributing changes across the University.

#4. Become a Sustainability Influencer

Lead the way on online by modeling and sharing your own ideas, resources, and life hacks. Sign up to be one of our influencers and/or share how how you engage in sustainability at home by tagging or mentioning #/@ sustainablescu on Instagram.

#5. Earn Virtual Playbook Badges

You can continue to live out the Sustainability Strategic Plan by committing to actions in our Playbooks. Tell us which actions you've completed by snapping a photo of you in action and we will award you a virtual badge in that category!
