Details

The annual Earth Day Celebration promotes and highlights the importance of protecting the planet. Students are invited to learn about sustainable measures through discussion and hands-on activities. We focus not only on ways to be environmentally conscious on campus, but on ways to tackle even bigger, real-world issues.

With the help of our generous alumni, this year’s celebration will be enhanced with a “build a sustainable house” theme, as well as henna, raffles, and free food. As participants visit tables throughout the fair, they will learn about sustainable heating, efficient energy use, sustainable building materials, rain gardens, and other items needed to build an environmentally friendly house. As they move through the tables, they will “build a house” and successfully “built houses” will be entered into a raffle.

These activities are crucial in helping us attract students and share our message.

 

About UC Environmental Action

Ursinus College Environmental Action (UCEA) is a student organization that helps to organize environmental initiatives across campus, while also volunteering time off campus as well. The purpose of the organization is to provide a forum for students who are passionate about the environment at Ursinus to meet, learn, act and serve. We work to bring awareness campaigns and service opportunities to the members of our campus and the surrounding community by arranging fun and informative activities, events and trips with the environment in mind. Our previous activities include visiting a wolf sanctuary, waste watching at the Philadelphia Marathon, organizing a recycle bingo night and other meetings that have included discussions about environmental current events. The club is open to all Ursinus students who are passionate about any and all topics regarding the environment, and we encourage them to join us for weekly meetings.
