Delta’s Earth Day 2011 will feature music, guest speakers and a "poetry slam" presentation with a "green" theme.

Purchase a slice of organic pizza prepared by Delta’s own Student Chef. Attendees can enter an iPod raffle for checking out the tables and information.
Students and guests are encouraged to voice or submit written ideas for developing green practices at the Delta College Green Team’s Innovation and Sustainability Committee Booth. These suggestions are intended to help guide students and staff toward sustainable green practices on Delta’s campus.
"We are in the process of raising awareness," added Schwartz. "The Earth Day event can help us gather ideas for developing green practices on campus and in our communities." Some actions, according to Schwartz, have already been adopted by the Delta College community. "Delta College has signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment. This initiative is a formal pledge to develop more sustainable practices."
