Carbon Neutrality Initiative
Bonnie Reiss CNI Fellow Class of 2019
Bonnie Reiss CNI Student Engagement Fellow
Undergraduate Student, Environmental Studies
UC Santa Barbara
Samantha Ellman is a second year Environmental Science major looking to gain knowledge and experience in the field of sustainability as the UC Carbon Neutrality Initiative Student Engagement Fellow. As a second-year student, I am excited to be involved with CNI so early in my UCSB career and am eager to make tangible change on UCSB’s campus. In this position, I plan to spread awareness about CNI and promote student involvement in the initiative through tabling at events, coordinating UCSB’s climate coalition, participating in town hall style forums regarding carbon neutrality, and encouraging participation in the Cool Campus Challenge. I hope to increase the sense of urgency regarding CNI across campus so that there is adequate time to ensure UCSB can reach carbon neutrality by 2025.
