Evergreen Poems
Thursday, April 14 | 1:30 p.m.–2:30 p.m. | Environmental Center Classroom
Earth Day became "official" in 1970.  But, in truth, Earth Day has been celebrated by poets from ancient China to Elizabethan and 19th Century England to modern America. Celebrated in the lyrics and narratives of Li-Po and Shakespeare; Anne Bradstreet and Emily Dickinson; Frost and Millay. Poetry has been "evergreen" long before the world talked of "being green." Poet Ira Joe Fisher, author of Songs from an Earlier Century, Some Holy Weight in the Village Air, and Remembering Rew, will share his own poems and those of others as Pace turns green with hope as part of our 11th Earth Month celebration.

This year we will feature ability, privilege, sexism, mass incarceration, sexual assault, by-stander responsibility, and coming out as a college student.

11th Annual Student Summit
Friday, April 15 | 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. | Willcox Hall

That’s why the Environmental Consortium of Colleges and Universities invites you to the 11th Annual Student Summit, featuring workshops on climate justice, advocacy techniques for students, ecological restoration and sustainability, and intervening in complex systems such as food, water, and health; and more.
