Student Environmental Action Coalition (SEAC) is committed to defending social justice through environmental initiatives. We communicate messages of environmental and political activism through local initiatives, but have extended our reach to the state level as well, and have participated in several international service learning trips.
Our organization has a rich history of advocating for people disenfranchised by environmental factors. We have worked with the Rogers Road community in its efforts to maintain adequate public health standards. We hosted the Rural Sustainability Summit to educate the public about economic development, energy, food, and water security in rural North Carolina. Most recently, we hosted a speaking series that addressed the environmental and social justice implications of the North Carolina Hog Industry.
Other past on-campus initiatives have included hosting the Carolinas PowerShift Conference, and the promotion of reusable water bottles as well as Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs. Past service learning trips have included a greenbelt project in Kenya, a water sanitation project in Tanzania,and a greenhouse project in Bolivia.
