Earth Week 2016

Posted on 07.10.2017
Although Earth Day is April 22, UIUC celebrates the earth all week long, running from Friday, April 15 to Friday, April 22. This years theme is climate change. Events are run by the RSO, Students for Environmental Concerns with ESE major, Catherine Yee, being the primary organizer. As Yee was quoted in The News-Gazette, “It’s a good opportunity for us to really open up and get the word out and say we should start actually changing things, we should start making these changes in our daily lives.” You can find the original article featuring Yee here.
