Happy Earth Day! This time of year always prompts me to think of my sustainability heroes; the individuals that have inspired me and guided my path. These folks include many campus sustainability champions from years passed as well as the present. Each day I see STARS reports or read stories submitted to the Bulletin and am in awe of the sustainability accomplishments on campuses throughout the globe. While there is still much to do, I thank you for your ongoing efforts to transform higher education into a foundation for a thriving, equitable and ecologically healthy world.
How are you and your institution celebrating Earth Day? Please share photos of your Earth Day celebrations through the Campus Sustainability Hub and gain inspiration by exploring what many of your peers are doing. Submitted photos may be featured in an Earth Day blog post. Please add a title, description, caption or optional photographer credit, and don’t forget to include “Earth Day” as one of the tags when sharing your photos.
From all of us at AASHE, Happy Earth Day!
