Earth Month Celebrations Announced
Friday, April 1, 2022 – Cleveland, OH –Today the City of Cleveland’s Office of Sustainability announced the lineup of events and activities to celebrate Earth Month throughout April. The city will host and participate in several in-person and virtual events that focus on the urgent need for sustainability, environmental justice, and climate solutions by highlighting the local organizations, businesses, artists, and initiatives that support the acceleration of climate progress in our region.
“The City of Cleveland is committed to advancing climate action in our community,” said Mayor Justin M. Bibb. “I encourage all of our residents to take part in the activities and resources available not only throughout the month of April, but year-round.”
The city celebrates the environmental successes over the past year, including the launch of the Circular Cleveland initiative, a comprehensive plan to transition Cleveland to a more sustainable economy, The Cleveland Tree Plan Equity Focused-Approach and Cleveland’s Clean and Equitable Energy Future that provides pathways to achieving 100% clean and renewable energy while generating millions of dollars in public benefits, green jobs, and reducing energy burden for residents.
On a regional level, Mayor Bibb recently joined The Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Cities Initiative--a binational coalition of 128 U.S. and Canadian mayors and local officials working to advance the protection and restoration of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. Adding Cleveland to the membership means that the large cities in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River Basin are all active members of the organization.
In conjunction, the City of Cleveland and partners (Sustainable Cleveland & Cleveland Water) are participating in the 2022 Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation from April 1-30. The challenge is to promote the development of positive water conservation behavior in our residents. Clevelanders are encouraged to challenge themselves by making water-friendly lifestyle changes for a chance to win prizes including $3,000 towards household utility bills.
