Earth Month in Review

See highlights from an exciting Earth Month spent forging connections between students, staff, alumni and community members to collectively envision and pursue pathways towards a more sustainable future at Temple and beyond.

Students used tools and insights from Temple faculty and science communication professionals to practice honing their research pitches to appeal to diverse audiences during our Climate Communications Workshop.

EcoLeads collaborated with the College of Public Health and New Kensington Community Development Corporation for a block clean-up and community health fair where they distributed environmental health resources.

We hosted several feedback sessions where students and Temple community members shared their thoughts and ideas on our new 2024 Sustainability Action Plan.

Russ Zerbo, advocate with Clean Air Council, and Chitra Kumar, Managing Director of the Climate and Energy Program from the Union of Concerned Scientists, joined us to discuss pathways to climate justice on local and federal levels.

We collaborated with Ambler Campus to foster combined human and environmental wellbeing through hosting Climate Cafes at their Arbor Day celebration.

Student leaders joined Temple Staff and higher education leaders from around the region to discuss pathways for decarbonization at Temple and beyond.

Green Grant award winners TU SEEDS and Bio Society collaborated with us to host an Earth Day Expo that connected students with involvement opportunities at environmentally focused organizations and initiatives at Temple and Beyond.

Several Temple Alumni pursuing careers in sustainability joined us for a panel and networking reception where students explored how they can pursue positive environmental change in their professional life.
