The event will feature speakers, performances by local musicians, original art installations created by UW students, as well as a variety of exhibitors, RSOs, and organizations promoting sustainability and environment-focused interests and missions. The theme of the event is "Engage for Earth" - we want to students to consider social and environmental justice as well as the natural environment and emphasize opportunities for students to engage and help make local communities more sustainable through service.

We want everyone that will be a part of this event to acknowledge the importance of stewardship in regards to our social and physical environments. We have only one earth, and it would be great to allow future generations to live in a world that is better than ours.
