A petition recently found its way to the UNM president’s desk supporting the goal that the university pursue 100 percent renewable energy by 2050.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, Coalition Environment New Mexico turned in a petition with 1,500 signatures which included UNM students and faculty.

Recently, the UNM student senate passed a resolution in favor of the same goal.

Officials say this petition is a sign that people have the power to create a more sustainable future.
