Yale Blue Green

Yale Blue Green (YBG) is a community comprised of Yale alumni, students, faculty, staff and affiliates engaged in “green” topics and issues. Our mission is to support the University in its sustainability efforts and to serve as a hub for thought leadership, collaborative action, lifelong learning and inspiration on initiatives relating to the environment and sustainability. 

What Does YBG Do?

  • We support the Yale Office of Sustainability and University sustainability efforts, including the “greening” of alumni events such as reunions and Assemblies.
  • We create community by connecting Yalies interested in sustainability issues through events where Yalies live, serve and work. The ever-expanding list of event locations includes New Haven, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, San Francisco, China, Baltimore and San Diego. We also create digital community through on line programming, communications and social media.
  • We organize and participate in sustainability-related service projects, service trips, advocacy and Yale Day of Service events.
  • We work with strategic partners, such as NRDC and Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, to support alumni service activities and extend our impact.
