  1. Here at Harvard, Earth Month is about community. This year, one of the many ways we activated and celebrated community was through connectivity. From using the hashtag #greenharvard, to community pledge blackboards, a fill in the blank campaign with Harvard Business School, to a fun Earth Month Photo Booth, the Harvard campus came together to address what each of us can do for the future of the planet.
