On April 22, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Although we cannot celebrate together in person, there are still a variety of ways to celebrate at home alongside the Office of Sustainability and others around the world. Organizations are hosting webinars, online discussions and various activities to help you get involved.

Over the 24 hours of Earth Day, the digital landscape will be filled with global conversations, calls to action, performances, video teach-ins and more.
