UC Green in action.

Cooperative Community Greening

UC Green has evolved from its early start as a 1998 University of Pennsylvania’s Facilities and Real Estate Services program titled UC Bright. The goal of this program was to enhance University City and the surrounding neighborhoods which adequate and decorative lighting. Neighborhood resident and Penn staffer, Esaul Sanchez, was the first executive director. The vision of an organization that would "unite community organizations, city agencies, university students and residents in local greening efforts" was born.

Today, UC Green continues to improve our neighborhoods. Through partnerships and education we empower volunteer environmental stewardship in University City and its surrounding communities.
