Join the movement


Want to make real, lasting change on your campus to combat climate change and biodiversity loss? You’re in the right place! 

Our programming supports students like you who bring this movement to their campus and community. Here is how we work with students and schools:

Ground Up Advocacy Bootcamp

Our Ground Up Advocacy Bootcamp is a cutting-edge training intentionally built for emerging community leaders. This two-day program emphasizes coalition building, multimedia training, campaign strategy, and volunteer recruitment in addition to herbicide-specific education. The Bootcamp takes a look at pesticides and their impacts on human and environmental health, all while providing participants with the advocacy and organizing skills to enact change in their communities. Participants walk away with a deeper understanding of toxic chemicals, what it means to rewild spaces, the intersection of human and environmental health, and how these issues tie back to social justice and climate change. Bootcamps take place biannually in the summer and winter. Put your name on the list here so you will be the first on to know when our next Bootcamp is coming up!

If you don't see your campus listed, you can check out our Action Toolkit, attend one of our Ground Up Advocacy Bootcamps and bring the movement to your campus. We also encourage you to send this message to your campus to push them to go organic and apply to our Green Grounds Certification program. We can’t wait to start working with you!
