Happy Earth Day!
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day celebrations which included a massive “Teach-In on the Environment” led by student activists at the University of Michigan in 1970. We invite you to continue the Earth Day tradition by engaging in the Earth Day at 50 Teach-Out and joining a new online course looking at the unprecedented challenges facing the sustainability of our planet and society.
You’re invited to engage in an intergenerational and interdisciplinary conversation about what sustainability means across different sectors, disciplines, and lived experiences. Hear from more than 20 experts as they explore themes including global sustainability efforts, climate change, environmental justice, and more. We hope this global conversation will inspire you to take individual action and help to develop collective visions for a sustainable, just, and peaceful world.
