Earth Week at Emory

Due to a recently passed SGA resolution, April has been dubbed “Sustainability Month” at Emory. In addition to events planned during Earth Week, the Office of Sustainability Initiatives has been working collectively with student environmental groups, Emory faculty and staff and community volunteers to plan additional events for the month-long celebration. The series of events included Greeks Go Green and a national public health event focused on climate change. This year, Earth Week will take place April 19 – 25. There are many places on campus to take in the celebrations, get involved and make a global impact.
