ASU hosts Earth Day event

April 21, 2009

Earth Day is just one day out of 365, but earth-minded student groups at Arizona State University are taking the opportunity to celebrate and spread their message of sustainability.

“It’s all about transformation,” says Heather Hazzan, a student at ASU’s School of Sustainability and one of the organizers of the event.

Hazzan hopes the day’s activities will encourage participants to think and act more sustainably. With informative booths and demonstrations, speeches from State Representatives Ed Ableser and David Schapira, contests, prizes, a solar-powered concert, and a 5K race, the event offers a variety of ways to get people interested and involved.

The April 22 event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Hayden Lawn at ASU’s Tempe campus. The 5K run will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Tempe Center for the Arts, with a green expo and race registration opening at 5 p.m.
