Earth Week Every Week

Students at Cal Poly Humboldt demonstrate and participate in sustainability efforts year round which shows their commitment to making  Earth Week Every Week. One great example of this is through continuing this commitment into life after graduation, via the Graduation Pledge. Furthermore, students consistently plan events, activities, collaborate across campus, and make a daily habit of environmental responsibility and allyship, among other methods. 

During the official time of Earth Week every April, students utlize this platform to reconvene and further affirm these values. Read about present and past Earth Week events below:

Spring 2022 

(Posted 2/25/2022)

Earth Week is coming up! This year it will fall from April 18th through the 22nd. Cal Poly Humboldt has traditionally led an Earth Week Every Week campaign to celebrate with events, activities, and much more. The EWEW committee this year is composed of representatives from Associated Students, CCAT, WRRAP, and Green Campus. With the Social Justice Summit, Food SummitDecolonizing Economics Summit, and other campaigns going on around Earth Week it has been decided that the EWEW committee will support these events rather than creating Earth Week specific plans. People who are interested in contributing activities can attend a committee meeting via Zoom on Thursdays at 4:30PM. Additional questions can be sent to the committee chair at zv3@humboldt.edu
