2015 - Earth Day's 45th anniversary - could be the most exiting year in environmental history. The year in which economic growth and sustainability join hands. The year in which world leaders finally pass a binding climate change treaty. The year in which citizens and organization divest from fossil fuels and put their money into renewable energy solutions. These are tough issues but we know what's at stake is the future of our planet and the survival of life on earth. On Earth Day we all need to take a stand so that together, we can show the world a new direction. It's our turn to lead. So our world leaders can follow by example.
UAlbany's Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences will host a celebration of the Earth, the environment and sustainability at the Third Annual Family Earth Day on Sunday, April 19 from 1-4 p.m. on the University's uptown campus. The event, which is geared toward children and families, offers a wide range of activities to appeal to a broad youth audience including a land planning challenge; composting station; glaciers: then and now visual; arctic creatures mobiles, and a traveling nitrogen game, where students learn how clouds are formed.
The event is free and open to the public so stop by and enjoy the Earth Day activities!
