UCI has many organizations advancing sustainability on-campus, and our communities have many organizations doing this work. Come join this on-campus fair to meet all these organizations and have some fun while doing it!

Sustainival is an annual fair that celebrates UCI’s campus culture of sustainability and our status as one of the environmentally outstanding universities in the world. The event will feature booths from campus and community groups, catered lunches for the first 200 participants to complete a passport, and opportunity prize drawings.

This event has traditionally been supported by The Green Initiative Fund & Student Housing Sustainability.

Sustainival started in 2017 to uplift the organizations on-campus and off-campus that are advancing sustainability within our community. It started as a “Sustainability Carnival” fair with activities and games for folks to participate in. Sustainival’s have featured sustainable fashion shows, guest speakers, and more.

Some of our previous participants have included organizations such as CALPIRG, Orange County Goodwill, California State Parks, Climate Action Campaign, Irvine Ranch Water District, and many on-campus organizations.
