Is your department or local organization involved in sustainability? Are you interested in recruiting participants? Sharing information? Showcasing your eco-accomplishments? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might be a good fit for OSU’s annual Earth Week celebration!
Please consider signing up for a free booth at the annual OSU Earth Week Community Fair on April 19 and/or submitting your event to this year’s calendar, April 16-22, 2011! Submissions are due April 1; details and instructions are at http://recycle.oregonstate.edu/EarthDay.
Earth Week started in 2000 as a small information fair attended by a handful of environmental groups, and has since grown to an entire week of activities, featuring an annual Community Fair that brings 40 or more OSU and local organizations together to connect with students, staff and faculty.
One of the unique attributes of OSU’s Earth Week celebration is its open calendar and central website, which allows any local organization to submit an event related to sustainability online, and become part of the event lineup. The website serves as a hub of environmental activities and a directory of participating organizations, and organizations both on and off campus are encouraged to offer their events under the Earth Week umbrella.
If you have an idea for what you would like to see happen at Earth Week 2011, please comment on this post or contact the coordinator, Andrea Norris.
