Earth Day Festival

Earth Day Festival

Join us in celebrating Earth Day 2016 this spring! The 6th annual Earth Day Festival will be held at the BU Medical Campus on Talbot Green April 14th from 11:00-2:30pm and the Charles River Campus on the GSU Plaza (775 Commonwealth Avenue) April 21st from 11:00-2:30pm.

This year’s theme is Local Solutions to Climate Change in Boston, given our continued collaboration with the City of Boston and our community’s pioneering efforts to develop urban climate solutions in our city and beyond.

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 efforts on and off campus!
