The Cool Campus Challenge runs through April 26 and systemwide — including at UCOP — it’s going strong.

Last Friday, UCOP colleagues gathered in Oakland for a sustainability-themed, and sustainable, event featuring giveaways, ice cream, opportunities to make climate-friendly pledges, trash trivia and more (see the slideshow above). If you attended last week’s event, make sure to claim your points at the Cool Campus Challenge website.
