The third annual Earth Day Dallas is scheduled for April 20-21, and SMU will host three booths at the Fair Park festival designed to elevate environmental awareness and influence the way North Texans think, live and work.
The SMU booths are being sponsored by the Sustainability Committee, the Lyle School of Engineering (which will feature the work of its student chapter of Engineers Without Borders) and Dedman College – home to SMU’s programs in Environmental Science and Environmental Studies as well as its renowned Geothermal Laboratory.
Engineering and Humanity Week is making its own special contribution to Earth Day Dallas, leaving David de Rothschild’s “Plastiki” catamaran at Fair Park for exhibit at the two-day festival before moving it to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in downtown Dallas for the summer.
Earth Day will be observed nationally on April 22, 2013.
