Celebrate Earth Month® at ASU
April is Earth Month, an important month for raising awareness for, increasing education around and inspiring collaborative action in sustainability at ASU. As a communicator, you’ll find several opportunities to promote sustainability — as well as advance your own sustainability knowledge and impact.
Here are the top five ways you can get involved:
1. Promote and participate in ASU events
This year’s Earth Month is anchored by a special celebration (kicking off Earth Week) where we'll formally open the doors to ASU’s newest and largest research and learning facility, The Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building 7.
Leading up to this milestone event, there will be special presentations, lectures, panels, interactive installations and tours highlighting the sustainability efforts underway at ASU and beyond. Share these on your social channels, in your newsletters and wherever you communicate with your audiences.
Here’s where you’ll find sustainability events, programs and initiatives to raise awareness around:
2. Social media assets — important update on graphics and how to use them
You’ll find updated social media assets for Earth Day and Earth Month in the Holiday and heritage month toolkit.

It should NOT be used in graphics at this time until the university has acquired official written permission from the holder of the mark. When using “Earth Month” in copy, ensure the first instance on the piece or page has the official registered mark.
Also, look for ways to amplify these sustainability-focused channels on social:
