I am writing as a supporter of the student-led Earth Day Planning Committee to invite your school/department to participate in 2019 Earth Day. This year we will focus on the different ways in which engaging with the planet through the lens of equity and inclusion. While traditionally Earth Day at the University of Washington has been an environmental-centric festival, this year we are expanding the conversation to include the economic, social, and political aspects that we believe are crucial to any discussion of sustainability. Which is why our theme this year is Engage for Earth!

We are reaching out to invite all UW-members (as well as programs, schools, departments, and student groups) to actively participate in this year’s Earth Day events! We greatly appreciate your consideration of participating by having an information table or preparing a special presentation/event. We are expecting lots of foot traffic so it would be an excellent way to gain exposure.

Our programming will include speakers, exhibitors, performances, installations, workshops, classes, film screenings, panels, and more to both engage and empower students and local community members to get involved in their communities. There’s a lot of room for groups to get creative and participate in a way that really enhances this dialogue and gives all a chance to showcase what they do and what they’re passionate about, beyond the more classic tabling model.

Participation of UW members is free, but if you have the capacity to make any donation support to create more equitable opportunities for student participation in this event.

In addition to Earth Day, we will also be facilitating several related events in the week leading up to the April 22nd festivities. All UW departments and groups are encouraged to create their own event during the month of April focusing on diversity, environmental or social justice, or sustainability as part of Earth Week. To have your event included on the UW's Earth Week event calendar, email sustainability at uw.edu.

Please help us by sharing this information with other students and groups.

For those interested in participating, please contact the student coordinator, Sarah Culp, at sfculp at gmail.com. We look forward to learning how you engage!

Save the date!
