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
