Earth Day 2020 - Environmental Action for Survival: The History and Legacies of U-M's 1970 Teach-In on the Environment


Wednesday, March 11, 2020
5:30 p.m.– 8:00 p.m. EDT


Dana Building 1040

Ann Arbor, MI 48109
United States

The March 1970 Teach-In on the Environment (the model for the first Earth Day) was organized by the U-M student organization Environmental Action for Survival (ENACT). The success of this four-day event on the U-M campus and in the Ann Arbor community is legendary, and many ENACT members went on to make significant impacts in the environmental and sustainability fields. Six leaders of ENACT and of the national Earth Day planning committee will hold a panel discussion that honors the rich history of U-M's Teach-In on the Environment. They will also share insights on the evolution of the movement--and the ongoing work they are involved in today.
