Baldwin Wallace University hosted Earth Week events that were open to students, faculty and others interested in learning more about sustainability and raising environmental awareness.

While planning the festivities, Bailee Fitzsimmons, the 2024 student coordinator for Earth Week, said they were excited for the events.

“I’m excited to see how everything plays out,” Fitzsimmons said. “We need to be more environmentally friendly and open our eyes to how much we are impacting it.”

Fitzsimmons actively tried to engage other organizations and clubs on campus to improve the Earth Week experience, collaborating with the Berea Sustainability Committee to organize events.

Events planned for Earth Week included rock painting, a sunrise and sunset event, a movie viewing and other activities. More environmentally focused activities included a cleanup at Coe Lake Park with vendors promoting products and information about sustainability.

“We have found that students majoring in sustainability tend to be pretty active in campus life trying to push and nudge sustainability projects and practices,” said David Krueger, professor and Charles E. Spahr chair for the sustainability program.

This is not the first BW Earth Week, and Fitzsimmons said she was happy to be able to work with others to keep it going.

“I hope everyone can just learn more information about the environment and be aware that we need the environment to live, and we should take care of it,” Fitzsimmons said
