The Earth Day celebration will commence with an evening concert from 7:30pm to 11pm with local favorites Mike Love and Sam Ites, Lucie Lynch, and slam poetry by Jenna Robinson.

The Earth Day Festival at UH Mānoa is an annual tradition which promotes existing sustainability efforts on-campus and in the community to foster networking, involvement, inspiration, and a sense of momentum among student, faculty, staff, and administration in sustainability and environmental protection.

The event’s carbon footprint will be offset through plantings across campus of native/tropical plants and trees with Building and Grounds Management.

Current sponsors include: ASUH, UHM Chancellor’s Office, and SAPFB.
