Sustainability Pledge Banner with UNCW Sustainability leaf logo indicating that this is a collaborative effort.



The UNCW Sustainability Pledge was designed to raise awareness about sustainability issues and encourage the consideration and modification of daily decisions to benefit the environmental, social, and economic well-being of future generations. By signing this pledge, all students, faculty, and staff can collectively commit their support to these values.

Why is the goal 630 signatures?

In 2018-19, the number of Seahawks that signed the Sustainability Pledge doubled from the year before. In the 2019-20 academic year, UNCW Sustainability wanted at least 4% of our community to pledge to be a Sustainable Seahawk. Why 4%? It has been proven in politics and in business that it only takes 4% of a population actively participating in practice to start creating overall change. This year, we plan to go above and beyond, surpassing last year's goal and reaching even more Seahawks!

Why should YOU sign the Pledge?

  1. You can have a direct impact on environmental stewardship and make a societal change! Due to the dedication of students, faculty, staff, and administration, UNCW has been recognized worldwide as a sustainable university. You can support this mission by developing and establishing enduring values that promote a healthier, happier, more sustainable future.
  2. You can choose to receive a weekly newsletter automatically when you sign. This newsletter has much of UNCW and the surrounding community's sustainable programs, volunteer opportunities, grants, and job postings.

At least one person from each of the following organizations has signed the Sustainability Pledge in the 2019-20 academic year! Will you be the first to sign from your organization?
