We often need help with planning and organizing events, zero-waste education and outreach, community building, and communications.

We also list opportunities related to notable campus events on Volunteer50.


We are a staff volunteer organization. Your contributions support our education programs, outreach activities and the grants that we award. Make a one-time or monthly gift through UC San Diego. We appreciate donations of any amount. Thank you.

Each year, SSN awards small grants (up to $500) for on-campus sustainability outreach campaigns. The objective is to design an outreach campaign to educate and engage UC San Diego staff in the areas of:

  • Energy usage
  • Transportation
  • Waste reduction
  • Water and resource conservation
  • Climate protection
  • Green buildings
  • Food
  • Institutional operations
  • Community awareness
  • Environmentally preferable purchasing
  • Other (share your idea with us!)

More information will be shared on this website, in our e-newsletter, and through social media when applications are open.
