Take the UNCW Sustainability Pledge!

Can you have an impact on environmental stewardship and societal change? Definitely!

Individual efforts can add up to significant change. As a result of the dedication from students, faculty, staff and administration at UNCW, the university has been recognized world-wide as a sustainable university. Do your part by developing and establishing enduring values that do not inhibit the opportunities for the future.

All students, faculty and staff are asked to join together to make a sustainable difference by signing this pledge. It is meant to raise awareness about sustainability issues and encourage everyone to change and consider the environmental, social and economic impact of their daily decisions and choices.

As a part of the UNCW community, I pledge to take action to reduce my environmental impact, create a more socially responsible community, and support economically sound decisions. I will use my time and experience here to learn how I can make a positive impact in these areas in regards to daily habits, work, extracurricular activities, and decision making. I will share this knowledge with others so that they can also make a difference in the lives of Seahawks today, and for future generations.
