Earth Fest 2019 - Save Our Species

This year, the Earth Fest 2019 goals are:

  • to promote sustainable practices and environmentally friendly lifestyles

  • to empower student voice in the area of conservation, civic responsibility and community stewardship

  • to encourage positive choices and healthy dialogue between individuals and communities with different beliefs and mindsets

  • to engage students’ development of global and cultural mindset

  • to raise awareness about species and lands that need protection

 

Here's a breakdown of things you should know and possible things your students might be interested in throughout the week leading up to the event and on the BIG day itself.
