Earth Days at Salem State University 2022 - April 11-15, 2022
The theme this year is “Climate Crises: Actions for a Just and Livable World.” The February 2022 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on impacts paints a dire picture of “human-induced climate change” already causing “dangerous and widespread disruption in nature and affecting the lives of billions of people around the world.” The Washington Post calls the report a “warning letter to a world on the brink.” As an educational institution, Salem State University seeks to provide opportunities to students, employees and the entire North Shore community to learn about climate change science, impacts, solutions, and issues of climate justice. Throughout their lifetimes, our students will experience a changing planet and witness difficult debates about societal restructuring. Earth Days is one of many facets of Salem State’s mission to prepare our students to be future leaders in addressing the defining crises facing the planet.
Earth Days 2022 will be a week where the broader Salem State Community can unify to achieve a better understanding of how we can all contribute to slowing the advance of climate change and managing the impacts that are already occurring through measures focused on resiliency.
