Go Green Week

The Go Green Week was an NYU student-led initiative that aims to raise awareness to the environmental issues that our world is facing, and promote behavior that will help to solve them. This week looked to inspire students to take action, through a variety of events covering animal protection, ecological businesses, environmental NGOs, food production, and sustainable development. Besides holding events to promote this cause, the Go Green Week recruited ambassadors to help get as many people as possible to commit to a plant-based diet for a week. This Go Green Challenge offered participants a choice between becoming vegetarian, vegan, or raw-vegan for just one week.

The events that comprised Go Green Week at the NYU campuses across the world were a product of student clubs collaborating with each other. The initiative started at NYU Shanghai in 2015 and has now taken place in other NYU Global Sites.

March for Science

March for Science

Science, scientists, and evidence-based policymaking are under attack. Budget cuts, censorship of researchers, disappearing datasets and threats to dismantle government agencies harm us all, putting our health, food, air, water, climate, and jobs at risk. The March for Science is the first step of a global movement to defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies, and governments.  

March for Science Debrief

NYU faculty and students debriefed after the march and discussed further action to protect the sciences.
