major annual events

energy jobs fair

The Energy Jobs Fair is one of the largest student-run, energy-specific professional jobs fairs in Southern California, allowing employers to showcase internships and full-time opportunities in a multitude of industries.

Concentrating in the energy industry, this career fair provides students with the opportunity to network with professionals and explore careers at the intersection of engineering and sustainability, with a focus on renewable energy.

research policy and industry panels

REA hosts an annual Sustainable Speaker Series Talk where we invite a panel of UCLA professors whose research is at the forefront of modern advances in environmental sustainability. In the past, UCLA professors discuss topics such as how food systems impact climate change and antibiotic resistance, using machine learning techniques to reduce carbon dioxide emissions of concrete, developing technologies to harness radiative cooling which could dramatically reduce the energy used by our cooling systems, and sustainable urban development at the water-energy nexus.

waste awareness week

Waste Awareness Week is a week-long sustainability event that specifically tackles the impact of waste mismanagement on the environment. The Renewable Energy Association at UCLA, along with a number of sustainability, environmental justice, food insecurity, and artistic organizations, collaborate to create a number of events that:

  1. Expose students to the gravity and scale of the global waste crisis

  2. Discuss the various social, economic infrastructural and environmental causes and consequences of the crisis

  3. Empowers students to make informed decisions and lifestyle changes that can mitigate this crisis.

The week consists of a large variety of events that will appeal to all corners of our diverse campus. From interactive games, workshops and speaker events, to collaborative art shows, movie screenings and a swap meets, Waste Awareness Week hopes to engage all students and push them to think more critically about their waste generation habits, the single-use culture and linear economic systems that enable them, and the out-of-sight-out-of-mind mentality that blinds them to the true consequences of this global crisis. By collaborating with a large number of student groups, we also hope to plug UCLA students into the community of organizers who are working relentlessly on this issue, and tackling it from every possible facet.
