Earth Month

April is Earth Month at NC State. This month-long emphasis on the planet, sustainability and how you can make the world a better place is hosted by NC State’s Sustainability Council and University Sustainability Office. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we anticipated having around 50 sustainability-related events on campus this month. Though those plans changed due to COVID-19, Earth Month continues through a digital platform.
