As one of the leading institutions in higher education for scholar practitioners in support of social and ecological justice, Fielding staff members enjoyed spending Earth Day connecting with other like–minded “Earthlings” in celebration of the world’s largest environmental movement – 50 years old and still going strong.

Earth Day was born in Santa Barbara after a devastating 1969 oil spill — and Fielding was founded in the same seaside city just five years later.
