This week, CALPIRG at UC Irvine won the university’s Outstanding Sustainability Program award! The award is part of the 2021 Anteater Awards, an annual event that celebrates and recognizes the achievements and accomplishments of Registered Campus Organizations (RCOs) at UCI.
Here is what the award program had to say about CALPIRG at UC Irvine’s efforts:
The Outstanding Sustainability Program Award honors an organization that has promoted environmental stewardship and sustainability in the community through programs and events that not only educates their members, but also the community. This organization ran a “Save the Bees” campaign, which aims to protect the bees, their ecosystems, and our food systems and at the same time, they have educated and informed the community through an informative webinar, a public webpage, and a planned educational signage. Through their efforts they were able to certify UCI as a “Bee Friendly Campus”, deliver over 18,000 petitions to the Governor’s Environmental Staff in support of 100% clean energy, and have educated over 7,500 students during their recruitment drive. This year’s Outstanding Sustainability Program Award goes to CALPIRG! Congratulations!
