The quest for wholesome, sustainable food

In a dystopian fantasy world, all food production is controlled by fictional industrial giant Crow Foods. Scarecrows have been displaced from their traditional role of protecting food, and are now servants to the crows and their evil plans to dominate the food system. Dreaming of something better, a lone scarecrow sets out to provide an alternative to the unsustainable processed food from the factory.

Join Chipotle and the Scarecrow on a journey to bring real food back to the people. Play the game, watch the animated short film, and find out how to take action.

Petition to name extreme storms after climate change deniers

Petition to the WMO to name extreme storms after climate change deniers.

Since 1954, the World Meteorological Organization has been naming extreme storms after people. As scientific evidence shows that climate change is creating increasingly frequent and devastating storms, and with climate scientists declaring these extreme weather events as the new normal, we propose a new naming system. A system that names extreme storms caused by climate change, after the policy makers who deny climate change and obstruct climate policy.

No matter what you decide to study, each of these universities offers much in the way of caring for the environment  Among the many research opportunities, state of the art facilities, and engaging coursework, there is one thing for certain—attending a green school opens doors. Many of these colleges and universities are on the cutting edge of environmental research, and several others have taken the initiative to campus life. Indeed, attending an environmentally conscious school is an experience in itself. The student body at several of these schools actively participates in making campus living more sustainable, and for many students, it is a focus of their college careers. Lastly, attending a green school is opportunity to meet others who share similar interests—whether it be a career in urban ecology or marine biology. So if you’re interested, make it happen—go green after graduation!
