Campus Conservation Nationals

CCN is the largest electricity and water reduction competition in history.

Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) is the largest electricity and water reduction competition for colleges and universities in the world. Now in its fifth year, CCN gives a common voice and motivation to hundreds of thousands of students across North America, all working together to reduce consumption and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

CN is an opportunity to organize students and staff, host educational events, and challenge students and staff to participate in fun events that can have an immediate and lasting impact on your school's carbon emissions and campus culture. CCN is jointly organized by the U.S. Green Building Council, Lucid, National Wildlife Federation, and the Alliance to Save Energy.

CSU, Chico participated in Campus Conservation Nationals in the winter of 2013, 2014 and 2015, taking first place in the CA League of CSU's and UC's all three years and first place nationally out of over 100 colleges and universities in 2014.
