Laboratories consume a disproportionate amount of resources compared to other university spaces like classrooms and offices. We are working with UCSC Green Labs and UCSC Carbon Fund to reduce our energy consumption.
The land on which we gather is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.
