Earth Day at Samford University: April 18-22

During the week of April 18-22, the Geography Department, Office of Environmental Stewardship & Campus Enhancement, and various campus organizations will be sponsoring a range of events that focus on environmental themes from academic, social and spiritual perspectives. The theme for Earth Day 2016 is Water is Life.

Each year, Earth Day marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day broadens the base of support for environmental programs, rekindles public commitment and builds community activism around the world through a broad range of events and activities. Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a billion people participate in our campaigns every year. For more information, explore www.earthday.org.
