Wisdom Cafe Wednesday:
UC Global Health Day 2021

UC Global Health Day 2021 will take place on Saturday, April 24, from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. (PT). President Drake will deliver the welcoming remarks.

This free conference, organized by the UC Global Health Institute (UCGHI), is an opportunity to engage with the UC and global communities on what it means and what it looks like to start the process of decolonizing global health. Sessions will critically review past and current practices in order to understand the implications of colonization and racism as we shape the future of global health.

Attendees will be empowered to recognize and dismantle systems of oppression in their global health practices, with the goal of creating a more equitable, just and effective field. Learn more and register today!


Learn more about the UC Global Health Institute (UCGHI), a UC-wide initiative that stimulates, nurtures and promotes global health research, education and collaboration to advance health in California and worldwide.

Sustainability Training & Certification


 

Created by the Office of Sustainability, this UC Berkeley Sustainability Staff Training is composed of ten comprehensive on-line modules, designed to allow you to work and complete at your own pace. Upon successful completion of the 10 modules, UC Berkeley Staff can earn a Staff Sustainability Training Certification of Completion showing your gained knowledge in sustainability.

The modules cover environmental, social and economic sustainability and offer a snapshot of UC and UC Berkeley’s unique approach. Each module takes about 20 minutes to complete and are supported with videos, articles and more. The modules include carbon neutrality, zero waste, resiliency and environmental justice, sustainable eating, ecosystems and biodiversity, built environment, transportation, sustainable spending, water, and engagement.

Access this staff training through the UC Learning Center. Becoming certified through this program also situates you (if you want) to become a peer to peer campus sustainability advisor and join a soon to be established Community of Practice, helping us build a widespread culture of sustainability at Berkeley.
