Earth Day 2020

 

Celebrate Earth Day: 50th Anniversary

Students for Sustainability

When COVID-19 ended plans for an on-campus celebration of Earth Day, First Year Civic Scholars created a website to encourage creative ways to join in the celebration of our planet and make a difference!

A Digital Celebration

"On Earth Day, April 22, 2020, we have two problems: the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and the climate crisis. The coronavirus pandemic does not stop us; rather, it reminds us of what’s at stake in our fight for the planet." Join earthday.org in taking action from your home!
