Earth Day Festival

2017 Earth Day Festival 4/13 BUMC & 4/20 CRC

Join us in celebrating Earth Day 2017 this spring! The 7th annual Earth Day Festival will be held at the BU Medical Campus on Talbot Green April 13th, 11:00am-2:30pm and the Charles River Campus on the GSU Plaza (775 Commonwealth Avenue) April 20th, 11:00am-2:30pm.

This year’s theme is #BUClimateAction, given the University’s current work to develop a Climate Action Plan that is integrated with its Strategic Plan.

The Earth Day Festival is an educational and dynamic event that brings together local businesses, nonprofits, BU departments, student organizations and more to share interactive and fun activities outdoors. The event draws a large crowd of community members to celebrate sustainability together.

Come learn more about how you can get involved with sustainability and climate action efforts on and off campus!

At the Charles River Campus, vote for your favorite dining hall, it’s a chowda throw down! Buy fresh, local produce at the BU Farmers & Sustainability Market.
