Earth Month Celebrations 2022
Sustainable Cleveland and partners invite you to celebrate the one place we all call home, Earth. Throughout the month of April, we're excited to host and participate in several in-person & virtual events that focus on the urgent need for sustainability, environmental justice, and climate solutions.
The City of Cleveland is committed to advancing climate action and our work centers around the 28 climate goals outlined within the Cleveland Climate Action Plan. In 2021, the City achieved national recognition as a LEED Silver Certified City showcasing the efforts of addressing community needs and its long-standing dedication to improving quality of life through sustainability and climate action. This Earth Month, we'll highlight the local organizations, businesses, artists, and initiatives that support the acceleration of climate progress.
