SUSTAINABILITY ACTION RESEARCH

Sustainability Action Research (SAR) is a student-initiated, student-designed, and student-facilitated program offered through the Institute of the Environment & Sustainability (IoES). The program is twofold: In the fall, students are invited to attend the Sustainability Talks, where they will hear from professionals, academics, and activists in sustainable fields. In the winter/spring, students participate in the Sustainability Action Research Teams where they are partnered with a stakeholder to research, rethink, investigate, and tackle UCLA's greatest sustainability issues.

This program was formerly know as the Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) which included the Action Research Teams. It was renamed in Spring 2016 to better reflect the purpose and goals of the program. 

Funding for SAR is generously provided by the Dart Foundation and ASUCLA's TGIF fund.
