Uniting and empowering California's community of higher education to collaboratively and nonviolently transform ourselves and our institutions.

Founded in 2003, the California Student Sustainability Coalition (CSSC) is made up of student organizations from around the state working together to advance sustainability in all areas of human endeavor.

We are building a community of shared values. We are educating, training, and networking the next generation of leaders here in the Golden State. We are collaborating with key decision makers, staff, faculty, and community members to promote, create, and implement university sustainability policies and transform higher education in California.

For the past 6 years, we have been working with the University of California (UC) on its landmark Policy on Sustainable Practices, arguably the largest, most comprehensive university sustainability policy to date, adopted in the number-one knowledge-creating institution on the planet: the University of California.

We believe that every person can contribute to a healthy, just, and sustainable future in his or her own unique way. Our aim is to be a vehicle for those contributions by acting as a medium in which those brilliant ideas for cultural and planetary healing can flourish.
