Every year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Penn Sustainability is planning a week of events and educational opportunities to celebrate our dedication to social, environmental, and economic sustainability at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Penn campus community has planned wellness walks and yoga, an ecology tour, a festival on College Green, and a rivershed cleanup, among other events, to learn about and celebrate our natural environment, during the week of April 18-22. See the full list and register to participate on the sustainability website. 

There’s still time for your Penn group or organization to create an activity or presentation to recognize Earth Week. Use this form to describe your event and how others can participate.
