[ Thursday, April 22, 2010; ] The Students for Sustainability at the University of Arizona, are excited to invite you to Earth Day 2010:
Carbon Down Arizona!
Our society is on the path to transitioning into one that embraces sustainability, pursues renewable
forms of energy, and values environmental stewardship. As such, Earth Day is no longer viewed as
a fringe celebration, rather it is a day where all generations can gather to learn about and discuss
relevant issues, brainstorm innovative solutions and create partnerships.
Echoing these themes, this year, Earth Day 2010, will emphasize:
Carbon Down Arizona aims to include student groups, the UA campus community and the
Tucson community. Through a broad audience base and a variety of activities, we will emphasize
the need of not only environmental education and activism but the development of future leaders
in all generations. Through student and professional partnerships, we aim to bridge the expertise of
the community and the unbridled enthusiasm and energy of young professionals in pursuit of innovative solutions.
This year the event is planned to take place on the UA mall, stretching from Old Main to Campbell Blvd.
This move will encourage larger participation by UA students and community, while remaining
accessible to the Tucson community and schools.
Last year, we successfully hosted Earth Day 2009 on University Blvd. with an attendance of over 2,000
community members and students. Similar to last year, Earth Day 2010 will be entirely planned and
hosted by Students for Sustainability. As the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, help us make this year
memorable for the wildcat community as we work together to CARBON DOWN ARIZONA!
