Earth day event at Stanford

Celebrating Sustainability

April 22nd marks the national celebration of Earth Day, and represents a remarkable legacy for the university. The inaugural event was organized across the nation by Stanford alum Denis Hayes. Decades later, we continue to honor this legacy and use the opportunity to reflect on sustainability as a core value at Stanford, as well as the integral role we each play in making that vision a reality. The annual Celebrating Sustainability Festival brings partners from across campus together to highlight the legacy of sustainability at Stanford that we all contribute to each and every day. 

TAKE SIMPLE ACTIONS TO MAKE EVERY DAY EARTH DAY

Office of Sustainability carefully studied and identified key individual actions that are easy to adopt, yet make a big difference by conserving resources, reducing costs, and engaging our campus community. During each of our seasonal Cardinal Green Campaigns, we encourage you to adopt these key actions into your Stanford routine. Faculty, staff, and students can participate by pledging to complete one, many or even all of the actions to make sustainability a daily habit.
