Earth Week Working Group
The Earth Week committee is a work group responsible for developing, planning, and providing a campus friendly week of resources, activities, and information which promotes awareness for Earth Day and other sustainability issues.
This week should focus on bringing the campus together to enhance our knowledge of sustainability while supporting the University’s Climate Action Plan.
Members of the committee should include students, faculty, staff, and professionals from a variety of departmental units throughout the university. The members should be mindful of the resources used during and before the event.
Earth Week should accomplish the following outcomes:
- Inform the community about current sustainability practices and issues;
- Promote green health practices;
- Generate investment in local, regional, and global sustainability issues through creative activities, events, and competitions.
