UF Earth Month 2024

SustainableUF invites you to celebrate UF Earth Month 2024 during the entire month of April!

What Is Earth Month?

Earth Day is an annual, worldwide event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

Here at UF, we focus on celebrating the entire month of April as an extended celebration of Earth Day. During this time, we invite all UF students, faculty, and staff to host programs and events with a connection to sustainability.

Earth Month is a time to reflect on our relationship with the planet, build and strengthen community, and renew a commitment to sustainability in our local communities and beyond.

Office of Sustainability Events

Signature annual events hosted by the Office of Sustainability include the Sustainability-in-Action Showcase and the Champions for Change Award Ceremony.
