Earth Day Kickoff March & Party

What Is It?

The Earth Day Kickoff is a march followed by a social, intended to promote awareness of the current climate crisis our planet faces, start discussions and build a community of supporters of environmentally-friendly actions and policies, and educate participants in ways to incorporate sustainability into day-to-day life.

 

The event consists of several components:

  • A poster-making session for the march

  • A "March for the Planet" around Purdue University

  • A social "party" following the march, including activities such as a student-built sustainability-themed escape room, succulent-planting, vegan food, and videos/board games

When Is It?

The Spring 2021 Earth Day Kickoff will be: TBD at 5:30 pm

The march will begin at the Engineering Fountain at 5:30 pm, and will lead to TBD, where the rest of the event (succulent-planting, escape room, food, etc.) will be held.
