About Earth Day 2023

The first Earth Day in 1970 helped bring environmental issues to the forefront of public consciousness. With each passing year, we recognize more and more how important it is to celebrate and protect our planet every day. We also recognize the need for our environmental efforts to be intersectional in order to promote climate justice for all.

With events/opportunities for both DePauw's campus and the community happening all throughout the month of April, we hope you find a way to feel connected to nature, others, and yourself.
