There’s almost always a sustainability event or virtual talk happening that you can participate in and support.
Earth Day and Earth Week
Earth Day is held each April 22nd to celebrate the achievements of the environmental movement and raise awareness for how we can slow climate change. UCLA Health Sustainability, Environmental Health & Safety, and Food Services and Nutrition will be hosting events at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center on Tuesday April 18th and at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday April 19th. Join the festivities from 12 - 4pm both days to celebrate Earth Week, learn about ongoing initiatives, and enter drawings for giveaways! The Environmental Health & Safety team will also be holding their annual Cigarette Butt Clean Up Event to promote UCLA Health's tobacco free campus and award prizes to the participants who clean up the most cigarette butts.

Clean Air Day
Clean Air Day is in October and coincides with Sustainable Transportation Month. Transportation accounts for 40% of California's air pollution. UCLA Transportation and UCLA Health Sustainability promote Clean Air Day and Sustainable Transportation Month to help everyone breathe easier and to provide alternative commuting options such as walking, riding a bike, carpooling, or taking public transit to your destination.
