Each year, UMass Amherst holds a festival where various sustainability-related organizations on campus and in the greater Pioneer Valley showcase the awesome projects they are working on to make our community more socially, economically, and environmentally just! Join us in our festivities!
This year, the Earth Day Network's global campaign is Protect our Species. Their goals are to:
1.) Educate and raise awareness about the accelerating rate of extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.
2.) Achieve major policy victories that protect broad groups of species as well as individual species and their habitats.
3.) Build and activate a global movement that embraces nature and its values.
4.) Encourage individual actions such as adopting plant based diet and stopping pesticide and herbicide use.
