Community Engagement through Earth Day Celebrations
February 9, 2022 1:00 PM -
How can we better engage with our communities around sustainability? How can we create connections with and between the various municipal, business, and non-profit entities in our communities? How can we promote student, staff and faculty involvement in the life of the communities in which we are located?
The proposed program will explore the questions above by reflecting on the experiences of UMass Lowell in promoting and coordinating a celebration of Earth Day and sustainability in the City of Lowell, Massachusetts. The program will review: (1) the origin of the engagement; (2) what has worked; (3) what could have worked better; and (4) what the engagement has made possible for the university and for our partners.
