September 27, 2022

Interested in planting trees on campus, learning more about clean energy, or taking some time to practice yoga in nature?

After two years of Covid-related interruptions, Celebrate Sustainability week returns to Yale from October 3-7 with a slate of in-person and virtual events to raise awareness and deepen campus engagement around sustainability.

This year’s theme is “Act Today, Protect Tomorrow,” a recognition of the urgent need to adopt sustainable practices in our everyday lives. All are welcome and encouraged to attend events hosted by individuals, departments, and groups across Yale.

Events this year include a campus planting party, climate talks, a native plant walk, yoga and meditation, plant-forward cooking demos, a book swap, a photography exhibit, and so much more. You can find more information and a full calendar of events on the Celebrate Sustainability website. 

“Celebrate Sustainability is a wonderful opportunity to reflect as a community on the work we’re all doing to promote sustainability across Yale,” said Ginger Chapman, Director of the Office of Sustainability. “This really is a celebration of the many efforts that take place—often behind the scenes—to address the urgent issue of climate change. ”
