Our Mission Statement and Vision
Our Mission statement
The Education for Sustainable Living Program (ESLP) is a collaborative and interdisciplinary effort to reshape the way we learn, effectively mentor students, and engage in projects that supports sustainable development adhering to the blueprint for a sustainable campus for the University of California at Santa Cruz. Using models of horizontal learning, ESLP supports student-facilitated Action Research Teams and guest speakers, while inspiring participants to internalize the concept of sustainability within academia and greater society.
The Education for Sustainable Living Program envisions a world where individuals, governments, companies, corporations, educational institutions, and other organizations operate with sustainable practices, and appreciate the ways in which we are all interconnected. We see the present as a time of great action and change towards a planet where environmental cost and social costs are taken into consideration with financial bottom lines.
