New Club Aims to Protect Environment

TREEage meeting

BROOKLYN COLLEGE — Brooklyn College’s new TREEage club conducted its first meeting in the Sustainability Club room on Tuesday, March 19. The event was held in collaboration with the Sustainability Club and the New York Public Interest Group to discuss how BC students can get involved in the fight against climate injustice. 

TREEage is a grassroots, student-led climate advocacy organization focused on building a community of youth that works towards achieving environmental policy change, according to their mission statement. The club’s mission is to educate NYC high school and college students on the current climate crisis and envision a more equitable future. Attendees already involved with advocacy on campus hoped to join the fight to protect the environment by joining TREEage.
