Established by the UO students to animate the
niversity’s mission – to press decision-makers to adopt public interest solutions to our society’s biggest challenges. OSPIRG seeks to harness the energy of students accompanied by expertise and continuity of a staff of advocates and organizers who work both on and off campus to advocate for the public. This is a chance to overcome apathy and make a difference on campus.
At the University OSPRIG is currently two environmental campaigns: Ban the Bag and Energy Conservation. Ban the Bag aims to rid Eugene of plastic bags through petitioning to citizens and businesses then using that to persuade policy makers to eliminate bags in Eugene. If you are ready to hit the streets and make a big difference one person at a time. The Energy Conservation Campaign focuses on classroom education in elementary schools to teach young children smart, practical, energy saving habits. If you want to work with kids to create a better future generations hop on board this campaign.
General Meeting is Tuesday at 7:00 in the Bin Lender room in the EMU
Ban the Bag meets Wednesdays at 7:00pm in the basement of the EMU by the big chair
