A photo gallery of 1970s activism at Eco U
With universities near and far jumping on the Sustainability bandwagon, UW-Green Bay rates special mention as one of the places the movement first rolled more than 40 years ago. Described as America’s first environmental university, where every day was Earth Day, UW-Green Bay claimed national attention almost from the day it opened in 1968.
This April 22 marks the 40th celebration of Earth Day, and UW-Green Bay will observe the occasion with a major on-campus event, Green Innovations 2009.
