Students and universities are leading the fight against climate change. Thanks to years of student organizing, more than 700 campuses have committed to carbon neutrality or have made some kind of commitment around climate change.
Yet—campuses continue to support dirty energy that is fueling the climate crisis, and making people sick. Students must stand in solidarity with communities being impacted by climate change and dirty energy, and demand that their campuses clean up their act.
This Earth Day, we need to remind colleges and universities of their commitments to the climate and demand they do more, faster.
On campuses across the country students are hosting actions and press conferences to Take Back Earth Day with bold demands for climate action.
We’ll collect photos and stories from across the country to show that young people are leading the way and demand nothing short of radical climate action!
