Project Description: Founded in Fall 2019, Perennial: The Undergraduate Environmental Journal of Berkeley serves as an open and accessible platform to showcase the diverse work of UC Berkeley’s environmental community. Operating between the space of a traditional news magazine and a formal academic journal, Perennial publishes mainly two categories of content: original editorials written by Perennial’s staff and academic articles submitted by Berkeley undergraduates. In mixing more easily digestible journalistic articles with academic works, Perennial hopes to appeal both to those already very knowledgeable on environmental issues and those who have just a casual understanding. Ultimately, Perennial seeks to raise awareness about the earth’s most critical issues and inspire innovative solutions to tackle them.

Goals of Project:

(1) to encourage student action and scholarship

(2) inspire discussion on solutions to earth’s most critical issues

(3) promote diversity of identity and opinion in the environmental sphere
