The climate campaign

The climate campaign aims to make the 460 four-year colleges and universities in the Northeast (as well as active high schools and community colleges) a driving force in reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions in the region. By making these institutions models of responsible energy policy, students can both have an immediate impact on greenhouse gas emissions and put significant pressure on state governments to follow suit. This campaign brings together the six major student environmental networks in the Northeast – The Student PIRGs, Sierra Student Coalition (SSC), Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC), Center for Environmental Citizenship, Free the Planet and ECO-Northeast – in this ambitious effort.
