Students at the University of Connecticut will be taking the Climate Change Challenge during Connecticut Environmental Action Day on Friday. 

This is a one day conference to inspire students to take on the #ClimateChangeChallenge and post their actions using the hashtag #ExtendTheChange to encourage others to do the same.

The goal is to increase students’ understanding of the environment and natural resources, as well as become environmentally responsible citizens.

Suggested climate change actions that anyone can do include: 

  • Reuse and recycle
  • Ban the bag (plastic)
  • Conserve energy (turn off lights!)
  • Use public transportation, walk, or bike
  • Eat locally
  • Plant a garden
  • Plant trees, green roofs and other vegetation
  • Inform and educate others
