Congratulations to Ph.D. student, Vanessa Raditz, for being selected as one of the 2022 Campus Sustainability Grant winners! Drawn from the Student Green Fee, the Campus Sustainability Grant awards up to $5,000 to current UGA students who wish to initiate projects that advance sustainability through education, research, service, and campus operations. Successful projects will address UGA's strategic priorities and integrate social, environmental, and economic solutions to help ensure that all people can thrive, both now and in the future.
Raditz earned their recognition for their project on "Fire & Flood: Queer Resilience in the era of Climate Change". Under the direction of Dr. Cecilia Herles, Assistant Director of the Institute for Women's Studies, Raditz aims to develop a documentary film about intersectional climate vulnerability and resilience. Project partners include an array of UGA departments and student organizations such as Sunrise Movement UGA Hub. Congratulations, Vanessa!
