Demand the University of Central Florida Administration take action against climate change

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


This Earth Day, demand that the University of Central Florida Administration take action against climate change and promote the well-being of the UCF community. March out of your classes with us for climate justice and for our future! We will meet at the Addition Financial Arena at 10 AM and march across campus to demand change.

We know that energy usage, social injustice, animal agriculture, and overall human consumption are the main causes of climate change. Our actions drive climate change which means that our action can also reverse it.

We demand that the UCF Administration implements this plan by the stated deadlines to effectively safeguard the economic, educational, and environmental futures of the UCF student body and community.
