ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO

SUBJECT:    EARTH WEEK: APRIL 17 - 24

Beginning April 17, we will join people around the world in celebrating Earth Week. At UC San Diego, this is an opportunity to celebrate our achievements in environmental sustainability and demonstrate our commitment to make our planet healthier for future generations.

The week-long series of Earth Week events, planned by our dedicated students and staff, includes a campus cleanup, lectures, film screenings and a sustainability awards ceremony. To view a complete schedule of activities, visit http://earthweek.ucsd.edu.

Sustainability is integral to our institutional DNA and our campusís history, dating back to the groundbreaking climate change research conducted at Scripps Institution of Oceanography by Roger Revelle and David Keeling. Today, we continue to build on their pioneering work, and the campus has become a living laboratory for sustainable solutions. I encourage you to participate in the Earth Week events, and learn more about the importance of protecting and preserving our planet.
