JHU celebrates Earth Week

Earth Week is JHU's annual celebration of our connection with Planet Earth and the sustainable progress Hopkins has made. This year's theme this year is eco-literacy. Every day, there are fun and informative opportunities to join the JHU and Baltimore community to celebrate our natural world and learn how you can play a part in protecting it for future generations.

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 or 60 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 calendar of events online. Many campuses are hosting more than one workshop!

On the Sustainability Office's website, you'll find a full list of all events across JHU campuses, flyers, marketing kit, Facebook events, and RSVP links. There is something for everyone. We can't wait for you to join us in the celebrations and support a culture of sustainability at Johns Hopkins University!
