Virtual Earth Week 2020!

Posted by | Start the discussion

For the 50th celebration of Earth Day, the PCC Sustainability Team transitioned to a fully online Earth Week celebration. PCC’s Virtual Earth Week complied webinars, podcasts, videos and activities for participants to complete from the safety and comfort of their own homes. The Virtual Earth Week Calendar provided a schedule of events per day from various organizations and higher education institutions.

The featured activity, Virtual Bingo was a success! The bingo provided a way for students, faculty and staff to learn about PCC sustainability programs, integrated ways to make more sustainable lifestyle choices and shared how local organizations are committed to sustainable practices. Bingo participants sent in their completed cards in hopes to win sustainability prize bags! PCC Earth Week Bingo

Our Instagram Challenge was a week long challenge for participants to tag @PCC_Sustain and share videos/pictures that represented the daily hashtag. Each hashtag was chosen to inspire individuals to participate in activities provided by the Virtual Bingo and tutorials created by the Sustainability Team.  Follow @PCC_Sustain on Instagram to find the tutorials on the IGTV tab.  Below are the daily hashtags and some examples of the awesome submissions!


The PCC Sustainability Team had a blast looking at all the completed Virtual Bingo Cards and Instagram submissions. This Earth Week was different than most years but we are so appreciative to celebrate from the safety of our homes. Thanks so much for engaging in any Virtual Earth Week activities. We will be announcing the winners to the Instagram Challenge & Virtual Bingo soon! Remember, we are all in this together!

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
