The VCU Office of Sustainability is involved in a variety of events all over campus throughout the year. Below is a list of events our office hosts specifically.
Campus Sustainability Day & Earth Day
Sustainability at VCU is so nice, we celebrate it twice.
We celebrate sustainability all year at VCU, but we have our two flagship events with Campus Sustainability Day in the fall and Earth Day in the spring.
Campus Sustainability Day and Earth Day both serve as national celebrations of sustainability in higher education. The goal of the events are to spread awareness about how VCU is working hard towards a more sustainable environment through our aggressive recycling efforts, adopting LEED green building standards and reducing electricity and water usage.
VCU celebrated our inaugural Campus Sustainability Day in 2010, and identified four campus sustainability themes: energy, mobility, food and waste. Campus Sustainability Day is in October, usually on the Friday of VCU Family Weekend. Earth Day at VCU is held the week of April 22nd.
We host workshops, informational tables and demonstrations from departments across the university and the Richmond community.
