Seedlings Green Guide at San Diego State
Want to be a part of creating a bright green future?Here's all you need to know about our campus and our city to help you make truly sustainable choices.
On my campus
SDSU has been recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the most environmentally conscious campuses in the nation. Our college aims to be carbon neutral by 2050, and has already made changes such as landscaping with native plants to save water and having LEED-certified buildings. The campus has a sustainable garden, where you are welcome to pick some fruit between classes, and many water refilling stations.
My city and state
The city of San Diego aims to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2035. Among other efforts to make San Diego more eco-friendly, the city has made improvements to public transportation, expanding trolley routes. The San Diego chapter of the Sierra Club is one of several groups working to protect wildlife in the area.
What can I do?
The task of tackling climate change can at times seem overwhelming, but it is important that we remain hopeful as we navigate the challenges ahead. The world is full of positive stories that highlight how our creativity, solidarity, and engagement can help change mindsets and move environmental policies forwards. There is power in numbers and successes matter at all levels: whether it is something as big as your university divesting from fossil fuels, or as small as you turning down plastic bags at the grocery store, celebrate them all!
