This year, the Savannah-Chatham Sustainability Coalition (SCSC) is partnering with local nonprofits to co-coordinate and publicize “Earth Day Savannah Month.” This will be a sustainable and safe way for businesses and environmental nonprofits to connect with the public and strengthen the environmental network in our community. The month-long event will be a celebration of Earth Day in April, featuring a collective of virtual and small, in-person events.
Earth Day Savannah has been the city’s largest environmental outreach event for the past 19 years. Due to the pandemic and canceling large community events, there was no festival last year or this year. However, with over 20 environmental nonprofits in our area and the City of Savannah’s commitment to 100% Renewable Energy by 2035, it is important for Savannah to celebrate Earth Day.
The Savannah Earth Day Festival served an important opportunity for local government, businesses, nonprofits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other. We take pride that it was the largest educational event in conjunction with Earth Day in Georgia.
