Earth Week will be April 17-21, and it is one of SERC’s signature annual programs that includes events each day of the week and hundreds of participants to celebrate the planet and its people. For more information, read below:
Celebrate Earth Week with the Berkeley community! Hosted by the Student Environmental Resource Center (SERC) in collaboration with campus departments, student organizations, and community organizations, events explore a wide range of environmental and sustainability topics.
In honor of SERC’s 10 Year Anniversary, this year’s theme is “Hummingbirds: joy, healing, and changemaking”, inspired by Wangari Maathai and the Story of the Hummingbird. The week draws community members from across campus for a week of events, including free food, workshops, panels, and art! This wouldn’t have been possible without the work done by students, staff, and departments across campus. We have almost 20 events throughout the week, and we will be raffling off prizes for event attendees! To be eligible for the raffle, please attend any event (if you attend multiple events, you can be entered multiple times!) and fill out this evaluation form.
These events are an opportunity for all undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty at UC Berkeley, regardless of level of experience with the environmental movement and the environmental justice movement, to learn more about climate change, environmental justice, and more. These on campus and online events can introduce you to amazing opportunities and new spaces both on and off campus. We hope the events are inspiring and joyful!
Festival tabling information:
On April 17 (the Monday of Earth Week) from 2-5pm, we are planning on having an Earth Week Kick-off Festival on the glade! This will be an outdoor collaborative event for all students to celebrate Earth Week. We are hoping to have fun picnic/activity/sporty vibes! We envision the environmental + greater student community hanging out on the glade, visiting booths, celebrating Earth Week, and making new friends. We are seeking groups to host booths at the event. Booths can sell baked goods, host crafts/games/other activities, or simply advertise their club or other environmental resources. Clubs are expected to bring their own signage and table/blanket. If you need any supplies, they can be requested from SERC. Please fill out this form if you are interested in participating!
