Earthfest celebrates sustainability initiatives across U-M and the surrounding communities, while providing an inclusive platform to educate and engage the campus community on opportunities to support sustainability on campus and in our daily lives.

In 2020, Earthfest was a virtual event from September 14-18. Many of the materials are relevant beyond Earthfest, so we’ve left them posted below for your use!

Earthfest is organized by representatives from the Office of Campus Sustainability, School for Environment and Sustainability, Student Life, and Graham Sustainability Institute.
