Community Leader’s View: Join UCSD at the Green Open House

By Marye Anne Fox
Chancellor, UCSD

In honor of UC San Diego’s 50th anniversary, and in celebration of National Earth Week, the university is hosting a Green Open House on April 16 and everyone is welcome. We invite you to come explore the campus and learn more about our top-quality educational opportunities, groundbreaking translational research, and our numerous initiatives that are creating a cleaner and greener future for us all.

The Green Open House is free and offers something for everyone — live entertainment, a clean and green car show, health screenings, a children’s activity zone, a landscaping showcase, a green business summit, cooking demonstrations, electronics recycling, sustainability walking tours, numerous information booths and much more. This is an opportunity to get healthy living tips and practical green ideas that you can incorporate into your life and home.

There is no better place to learn about sustainability than at UC San Diego, which has been ranked one of the greenest campuses in the nation. Our faculty, staff and students are working together to come up with innovative solutions for our pressing environmental challenges. We are focusing on new technologies and approaches to improve sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint. From solar panels and recycling to sustainable building and alternative fuel projects, UC San Diego truly is a living laboratory for climate research and solutions. The university also offers green majors, courses and internships.

I hope you’ll join us for this very special celebration of UC San Diego’s 50th anniversary and the university’s leadership in environmental sustainability. By making positive, sustainable changes together, we can significantly improve the health of our campus, our community and our planet.
