California University Students, American Climate Leadership Awards Finalist

CALPIRG Students are among 10 American Climate Leadership Award finalists to be recognized at the American Climate Leadership Summit 2020 (ACLS 2020) on March 25 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. 

 Working on 8 University of California campuses, CALPIRG Students ran and won a campaign for a UC-wide commitment to 100% renewable electricity. With 238,000 students across 10 campuses, UC’s new plan to run completely on electricity from renewable energy by 2025 is the farthest-reaching with more higher education campuses involved than any prior commitments in the nation.

Join us at the American Climate Leadership Summit 2020 (ACLS 2020) to honor CALPIRG and the other ACLA finalists. For more information about the ACLA finalists and ACLS 2020 go to and Register Today.
