Gustavus Groundswell Day: A Climate Action Initiative is an all-day, campus-wide event to showcase the commitment of Gustavus students to climate action! Through a day of different activities including: a climate justice march, phone banking, and the creation of a sustainability pledge mural (to be hung in the Nobel Hall expansion), the Groundswell will contribute to the promotion and prioritization of climate initiatives at Gustavus.
