Campus sustainability walking tours, film screenings, panel discussions and Car Free Day were among the activities to celebrate Earth Week, April 19-23. UGA’s new Office of Sustainability and Go Green Alliance hosted the walking tours which showed off sustainability initiatives in academics, research, student engagement and operations. The tours began at the Tate Student Center green roof plaza.

The Odum School of Ecology sponsored a program, “Earth Day @ 40: Where do we stand,” featuring a round table discussion with four local environmental leaders. Capping off the week on Friday was a Car Free Day in which faculty, staff and students were encouraged to car pool or use alternative transportation to get to and from campus. A food and drink station was set up in front of Memorial Hall, where commuters could register for prizes including gear and gift certificates from local bike shops.
