Future generations cannot live quality of life without recognizing their place as part of the natural world and caring for the Earth that sustains us. Bridging the gaps between environment and human life depends on addressing the critical needs of poverty, homelessness, inequality and food and water security. These are complex issues that need diverse perspectives.

In honor of this year's Earth Day, come out and explore the connection between environment, social justice, and how to tangibly address the great needs of our people and planet leading to collective healing. Join us for a day of community connection, service, reflection, food and wisdom.

The day will begin with a kick-off and light refreshments at PSU before each group takes off for their designated service project (on campus and off-campus options). We will reconvene at PSU for lunch (provided) and to reflect on the day. 

*Sign up for the specific service project you would like to join for this Earth Day event!
