In response to the recent developments regarding COVID-19, OSU has established an immediate prohibition on university-sponsored or sanctioned events of more than 25 people. The prohibition applies for an indefinite period. Please be sure to stay up to date at the OSU COVID-19 Website.
At this time, all in-person events as they were originally planned are being cancelled, including the Earth Day of Service and the Beyond Earth Day Community Fair. We are in a process of determining which events in the Beyond Earth Day Celebration can be reimagined to be offered in new ways and updates will be forthcoming.
We welcome you to submit new events to the Beyond Earth Day celebration calendar that are offered fully online.
Additionally, if you are interested in contributing ideas for events that could either be held virtually or comply with Oregon’s Executive Orders, CDC and university COVID-19 guidelines, please continue to submit your ideas to our BED Idea Library. We are awaiting further guidance before coordinating any in-person gatherings, but welcome ideas that we can explore once we have greater clarity in this rapidly evolving situation.
We recognize that the 50th anniversary of Earth Day is a meaningful and important milestone! Fortunately, organizations are responding by offering digital earth day options and updating their pages as they gather more information: Earth Day Network, We Don’t Have Time, and AASHE.
