Earth Day Every Day

Earth Day launched in 1970 as a country wide demonstration on behalf of the environment. The energy of the movement propelled the modern environmental movement to the front page. In 2016, we face local and global challenges which must be addressed using sustainability-focused solutions.


Earth Day Every Day is designed to help develop a more sustainable culture at Ohio University. The use of one day a year to celebrate the wonders and powers of Earth is a great start, but today we face an unprecedented challenge which calls for unprecedented focus. Creating a campus that engages in sustainable behavior regularly means having every student, faculty, and staff member thinking about the environmental, social and economic consequences related to our daily activities. No one person can change the course of sustainability at Ohio University, but as a collective we can.   


"Earth Day Every Day" is a collaborative effort aimed at encouraging all entities on campus to focus on sustainability-related programming and share their efforts through a streamlined calendar.  While this series was initially developed by Office of Sustainability, Graduate Student Senate, Zero Waste Initiative and International Student Union, all organizations on campus and in the community are encouraged to promote sustainable programming and join the effort.


Any University organization or department can become a part of the Earth Day Every Day collaborative!
