Environmental Alliance’s mission is 3-fold:
- Raise awareness of environmental issues and support actions that address these problems with the undergraduate community
- Give Duke undergraduates the tools to imagine change and reduce our ecological footprint on the planet
- Become stewards of sustainable practices in the Duke and Durham communities
Our main annual events include Eco-Olympics in the fall semester, which is a sustainability competition for first-year students. And EarthFest in the spring semester–a carbon neutral afternoon of various sustainability activities–to increase awareness and action on environmental issues and increase the use of green spaces! We also hold smaller campaigns, dinners and discussions, film screenings, and volunteer outings that see us engaging with professors, community leaders, and local nonprofits.
