The Environmental Caucus aims to raise awareness of current environmental issues, policies, and regulations on the local, state and national level. This caucus engages in activities that educate our members on issues and participates actively in improving our environment. The Environmental Caucus works on projects including signing petitions for issues that require public input, working on clean-ups, educating the local community on their environment and issues impacting it, and visiting natural spaces.
We also work to promote sustainability efforts on campus and in the local community. We work with other environmental organizations to increase our involvement and impact at UF and in the greater Gainesville area.
