Environmental Student Groups

The following student groups are working on environmental issues in Fall 2014:

ECO Students

The Environmentally Concerned Organization of Students (ECO Students) is a student organization that has been promoting sustainability and community at SFSU since 2002. Our current projects include the Sol Patch community garden and social activities. Weekly meeting time Tuesdays at 5:10pm at the Sol Patch Garden behind Mary Park Res Hall. For more information contact via email: sfsuecostudents@gmail.comFacebook, Instagram (@sfsuecostudents).

 

Fossil Free SFSU

Are you concerned about climate change? Fossil Free SFSU is a student-led campaign advocating for divestment from the fossil fuel industry. We have had major success in the past, receiving a partial divestment commitment from the Foundation and hosting the national convergence of the student divestment movement. We continue our push for full divestment and the strengthening of our student movement.

Contact fossilfreesfsu@gmail.com or call/text Jason at 415-933-4664 to get involved!

 

The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF)

This semester TGIF has aligned efforts with The Affordable Transportation Initiative in an effort to increase sustainability funding and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at an institutional level. More specifically we will be working collaboratively with a group of ENVS 690 students to create the foundation and timeline for a successful student fee referendum campaign.

They meet Mondays from 5-6:39pm in the ROMC Conference Room (on the terrace level of the student center). Students that are interested in attending can simply show up to the Monday  meetings or email Miguel Guerrero at dmiguelguerrero@gmail.com.

 

Real Food Challenge SFSU

The mission of the Real Food Challenge (RFC) is to harness the power of youth and universities to build a healthy, fair, and green food economy. By 2020, they aim to shift $1 billion of annual college food purchases (or 20% of the budget) away from industrical agriculture and towards local, sustainable, and fair sources. RFC also seeks to provide education and advocate for opportunities to connect communities with real food.

This semester RFC at SFSU is working on evaluating restaurants in the Cesar Chavez Student Center and will be hosting events and movie screenings throughout the semester. To stay updated on what they're working on, follow their Facebook page or email for more info: realfoodchallengesfsu@gmail.com.
