UCSF Holds First Ever Earth Day Town Hall

In honor of Earth Day 2021, UC San Francisco hosted its first ever town hall highlighting its commitment to environmental sustainability and how the UCSF community can support the University of California’s carbon neutrality goal. 

Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS, and other leaders discussed current initiatives to reduce carbon emissions, address climate health equity, improve environmental health, and incorporate greener designs in existing and new campus construction. 

Panelists at the virtual event, held April 28, also shared unexpected environmental silver linings from UCSF’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic in business travel, telehealth and energy savings.
