JHU Earth Week is April 17-21

Earth Week is JHU's annual celebration of our connection with Planet Earth and the sustainable progress Hopkins has made.

Taking place April 17-21, Earth Week's theme this year is eco-literacy. Join the JHU and Baltimore community for an event-packed week of showcases, celebrations, and learning opportunities to celebrate our natural world, and learn how you can play a part in protecting it for future generations. The full calendar of events is available online.

One of the best ways to get involved and support sustainability this year is attending a Waste Workshop. Want to recycle and compost but worry you're not doing it correctly? Waste sorting 101 workshops, taking place on every single JHU campus during Earth Week, will put your worries to rest. These 30 minute events will train you to become an expert on campus waste: where it goes when it leaves campus, the environmental and social impact of our waste, and how to sort your waste between the JHU trash, recycling, and compost bins. Look for the workshop held on your campus in the online calendar of events. Some campuses will host more than one workshop.

We can't wait for you to join in the celebrations and support a culture of sustainability at Johns Hopkins University! Use #HopkinsEcoSmart and connect with us on Facebook and Instagram to stay in the loop.
