Global Community Day 2020: Our Earth – February 11

Global Community Day 2020 Theme: Our Earth
Tuesday, February 11 (1:15 – 3:25 p.m.)

This year’s Global Community Day theme, “Our Earth,” is meant to prompt campus-wide reflection on the human impact on our planet. Students will spend the afternoon of February 11 exploring the environmental issues facing the global community and opportunities to have a positive impact.

The event will feature guest speaker Dr. David Weindorf, Associate Vice President in the Office of Research & Innovation and Chair of Pedology in the Department of Plant and Soil Science at Texas Tech University, screenings of his documentary, Between Earth and Sky: Climate Change on the Last Frontier, hands-on environmental science learning activities, and an interactive demonstration from St. Johns River Keeper.

Global Community Day is set aside annually to practice global citizenship, raise awareness of current crises, and remember our commitment to becoming “doers of good.”
