We are excited to announce that UCLA Action Research Teams are under way for our seventh year running! Our nine teams of 2014 include Recycling, Water, Zero Waste Pauley Pavilion, Hospital Sustainability, Energy, Sustainable Foods, and brand new teams Green Buildings, UCLA Grand Challenges, and ART on ART. With the support of more than ten faculty and staff stakeholders and advisors from UCLA's Institute of the Environment and Sustainability as well as a number of other departments across campus, students from a variety of academic backgrounds are beginning work on some of UCLA's greatest sustainability challenges. Learn more about the goals of each team and the team members and stakeholders here!
Students have already begun researching past sustainability efforts in their field and possible solutions. Soon, they will be drafting plans of action which they will carry out in spring. Check back often for daily updates from our Action Research teams!
