Each year, the Office of Sustainability coordinates with Students for Environmental Action to host an Earth Day celebration in Tate Plaza. Earth Day is a national holiday held annually on April 22. The first Earth Day celebration in 1970 activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
