Earth Day 2022: UCSC Invests in Chicago

UCSC Earth Day 2022

In honor of Earth Day, UCSC will host a two-day event to advance environmental justice. First, on Earth Day itself (Friday, April 22nd), we’re excited to convene a panel conversation about pathways forward in sustainability and environmental justice. The following morning (Saturday, April 23rd), we’ll host our annual Day of Service, where participants will work alongside community members on short-term projects to enact change. All UChicago students, faculty, staff, and alumni are welcome and encouraged to participate. We hope you will join us in honoring our shared green spaces, environment, and vital resources in collaboration with our neighborhood partners. 

Details, with registration links, for both events, are below.
