We invite events focused on earth ecosystems, health and wellness, viable economies, and social equity and drawing attention to the interdependence of the health of and justice for humans, animals, environment, and economy. Beyond Earth Day programming looks to highlight programs and activities that celebrate or provide education on the wellbeing of our society, economy, and planet. Events must also be relevant to OSU students, staff and faculty.
Beyond Earth Day Week events are held within the date range of April 17 – 23, 2021. A calendar of approved events will be included in our promotional materials, including the BED Events Calendar on the main BED page. If you need help adding an event, see the How to submit a Beyond Earth Day event instructions.

We encourage organizers of BED events to acknowledge and honor the native land on which OSU and Corvallis sits.

Here are a few event ideas that you may be able to hold and tie into your missions and goals as an organization:
The Beyond Earth Day (BED) celebration at Oregon State University has been a long standing tradition that helps the community better understand and engage in sustainability efforts. As it is such a large celebration that encompasses so many partners, the BED Committee receives many great ideas for events and collaborations - so many that we are not able to act on all of them. Thus, this year we are starting an 'Idea Library' to collect all of the great suggestions for events and collaborations that we receive. This library will be available publicly to the community at large to both find ideas for events, but also to find resources and community partners interested in collaborating with other organizations.
Have an idea for an event you want to share with others?

Interested in engaging with the community outside of Beyond Earth Week? The Corvallis Climate Action Alliance (CCAA) is hosting Earth Month in Corvallis during April. Their website features events and volunteer opportunities happening throughout the month that hope to boost participation in sustainable practices and to accelerate climate, social, and economic justice.
