The Specifics

Given the University of California’s Sustainable Practices Policy, what solution ideas do you have to help UCLA achieve its sustainability goals?

From April 18 to 27, students in groups of 4 can submit their overall solution ideas to improve UCLA’s sustainability and fulfill the University of California Sustainable Practices Policy objectives. Solution ideas should be implementable within one year and have a low cost or a minimum payback period of 5 years.

From April 27 to May 4, the public will vote on the ideas. Students, channel your offline and online social networks to get votes. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, you name it! Tell everyone you know to vote.

The top-voted submission will win one $100 gift card to ASUCLA establishments. Groups with the top 10 voted ideas will advance to the next stage, where you will create a business proposal for your solution and present it to a panel of judges in two rounds on June 2 from 9am to 4pm at UCLA’s Ackerman Union. The winners will be announced following the two rounds of judging, and will be awarded $400 to various ASUCLA establishments, have their solution published on GOOD.is, and have the opportunity to work closely with the Facilities Commission to implement their solution.

Submission tips:

  • Include the names and class levels of all your group members (up to 4 students per group)
  • Give a brief overview of 3-5 sentences on your solution: What is your solution idea and, briefly, how you would go about implementing it?
  • Email bgreenucla@gmail.com with any questions or see our website for more information.
