Earth Summit

Earth Summit is a yearly event for students, staff, faculty, and community members to come together to determine their involvement and action for the topic areas covered in the Campus Blue Print. Much of the event is formatted according to input from the students at UCSC as to what they would like to see, and will likely include project planning, opportunities to tackle the issues raised at the Student Environmental Center (SEC) Breakout events, and workshops about current campaigns and efforts to increase campus sustainability.


The blueprint for a sustainable campus is a multi-use, living document that strives to encompass the current visions of students, faculty, staff, and community members that have come together to share their ideas and goals for the future of UCSC at the Earth Summit event. This document is meant to serve as a launching point for students to create meaningful, collaborative projects on campus that inspire lasting change. The blueprint also acts as a guide for student organizations interested in receiving funding from the Campus Sustainability Council (CSC) for the upcoming school year. While the blueprint reflects no commitments from the administration, the process through which it is compiled displays multiple points of collaboration throughout the campus and community.
