During this remarkable period of uncertainty and difficulty, the Tufts Office of Sustainability sends it best for health and safety to everyone in our community. Our team has been working hard to transition to remote operations and continue to be a resource, a catalyst, and an advocate for environmental sustainability at Tufts. We are pleased that all of our interns are healthy and able to work remotely to keep our many programs alive, including the Eco-Reps, Green Fund, and Recycling Team, as well as work on community resilience building and create new videos and online content.
We will continue to share events, opportunities and stories as the Tufts community remains active and strong despite its geographic dispersal. Please see below for a selection of resources during this unprecedented time. We look forward to the day we are able to come together in person again.
Special situations such as the global health crisis we are currently facing highlight the importance of building resilience into our systems and practicing social sustainability on a daily basis. We have found ourselves asking who might be able to buy our groceries for us if we are unable to, or how we can continue to run our offices from home. This is a virus, but a natural disaster exacerbated by climate change may require us to take further unprecedented actions in the future.
April 22nd, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a time of remarkable change and raising of awareness for the impacts we have on the planet. In honor of this momentous occasion, the Office of Sustainability invites you to check our website and social media platforms often, and take part in Earth Month 2020 to work towards a more sustainable world for all.
