A student group from the social work and gerontology department are participating in Shippensburg University’s Campus Earth Day Celebration during StewardShip Week.
The social work students are currently enrolled in the course Practice with Organizations and Communities, and their objective is to educate SU students about environmental justice and why it is an important movement to the social work profession.
The group invites fellow students to stop by their booth during Campus Earth Day to learn about environmental justice issues, why social workers are involved and ways you can become an advocate.
The group will have complementary flower seeds and biodegradable pots available for planting when visitors complete a simple pretest and posttest; and will also be hosting a picture scavenger hunt for interactive learning.
The booth will be set up in the Ezra Lehman Memorial Library Academic Quad from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on April 26.
