In celebration of Earth Day, AASHE invited the higher education sustainability community to submit photos to the Campus Sustainability Hub depicting how campuses celebrated. Eighty-five colleges and universities across Canada, Cyprus, Egypt, Hong Kong, Mexico and the United States took a moment to share a snapshot of their recent celebrations! We were inspired by your contributions and wanted to share the story of Earth Day with all of you through the new Campus Sustainability Hub image gallery feature! We hope you enjoy the image gallery as much as we enjoyed putting it together!
Earth Day celebrations at colleges and universities involved advocacy, calls to action and more. Following AASHE’s endorsement of the March for Science, we received a number of images related to the Science March in Washington as well as numerous sister marches across the country.
Earth Day at colleges and universities across North America involved celebration, advocacy and calls to action. Following AASHE’s endorsement of the March for Science, we received a number of images related to the Science March in Washington as well as numerous sister marches across the country. Many institutions shared images and stories of campus events, festivals and other celebrations, while other institutions engaged in actions to promote sustainability through student engagement projects and community service. Below are some of the highlights.
We hope these photographs and stories provide inspiration and ideas for next year’s Earth Day planning. Thanks to everyone that contributed to this year’s image gallery!
