EvCC Celebrates Earth Day 2020! Since the inception of the EvCC Sustainability Initiative in 2009, Everett Community College has been dedicated to sustainable practices, providing free sustainability information and events and partnering with the local community to create a more eco-friendly campus environment. Sustainability at Everett Community College extends beyond recycling and campus resource management. It extends beyond the boundaries of the college campus. The college has a duty to help prepare students to be global citizens who are able to meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations to meet those needs. Further, the college should strive to educate through outreach and modeling in all aspects of campus life, the way forward towards a sustainable future. For the past 10 years, the college sustainability office has hosted an Earth Week event series on campus, including a plant swap and sale, guest speakers and other interactive events. Earth Week at EvCC may not be physically possible this year, but the celebration continues with a host of virtual options:
