UW Earth Day Student Planning- Paid/Volunteer

UW Sustainability, the College of the Environment and the Campus Sustainability Fund are looking for students to help plan this year’s Earth Day events, including a part-time paid student coordinator position. The goal of this year’s Earth Day is to be an inclusive, diverse event that incorporates a focus on social and environmental justice and engages members of campus who are traditionally underrepresented in discussions and actions around sustainability. Event programming may include interactive arts, live performance and inspirational speakers to create a multi-dimensional event to attract students from across campus.


The UW Earth Day student coordinator will help plan and coordinate the 2019 UW Earth Day celebrations. This student will recruit and lead passionate, multi-disciplinary and diverse student volunteers in a planning committee to help determine Earth Day programming, and will also coordinate volunteers for the event. Full details and application information can be found here:


Any student who is interested in volunteering to be a part of the Earth Day planning committee should email Toren Elste, UW Sustainability Program Specialist, at
