Earth Month

Celebrating the Earth the entire month of April! 

All BGSU Earth Month events will be hosted and facilitated virtually and in-person

In January 2015, BGSU completed its Climate Action Plan and publicly committed to being "carbon neutral" by 2040 in order to combat the increasingly apparent negative effects of global climate change. The Office of Campus Sustainability operates within Campus Operations to fulfill three overarching goals established through BGSU's Climate Action Plan and Strategic Plan to achieve institutional carbon neutrality:

  1. Reduction of Emissions
  2. Waste Reduction & Resource Conservation
  3. Education, Awareness & Outreach

Due to the period of online instruction connected to COVID-19, Earth Month activities for April 2021 will be primarily virtual.

2021 Climate Action!

This year, the national Earth Month theme is Climate Action. The BGSU Office of Campus Sustainability will be planning virtual events that fit this theme.
