The Green Observer is the only entirely student-run environmental publication at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Our magazine was founded in 2006, and runs out of the University YMCA as one of eleven YMCA Student Organizations. We used to be a print publication, but as of 2018, we are entirely online to better align with our ideals and reduce our environmental footprint. We publish two online issues per semester.
We strive to educate and promote sustainability throughout campus and the Champaign-Urbana community using mediums such as writing, art, and photography. Submissions are encouraged – you do not have to regularly attend meetings to have your content published in our issues.
If you are interested in joining the club, we are always looking for new staff members! Feel free to join us every Thursday from 7:00-8:00 PM at the University YMCA in the YEET Room (formerly the SPO). If you have any questions, feel free to visit our CONTACT US page and shoot us a message!
