Global Day Of Action 2023 Social

On April 19, 2023, members of the Notre Dame global community will respond to Laudato Si's call to respond to the global challenges of climate crisis, biodiversity loss, and ecological sustainability. In South Bend, Notre Dame International (NDI) staff will host a variety of community volunteer events and partner with Cultivate Food Rescue, Good Shepherd Montessori's Urban Farm, and Rebuilding Together St. Joseph County. 

Notre Dame’s global locations will host a variety of events, including visits with indigenous communities in Guatemala, the launch of an after-school program serving vulnerable immigrant communities in Chile, student presentations focused on local action to protect the environment, city and campus wide clean-ups, student meetings with local leaders on public policy and access to safer drinking water, the launch of a local kitchen garden, and a virtual bingo competition. In addition, the study abroad team will launch a podcast episode featuring two NDI Global Sustainability Fellows in Rome. 

The Global Day of Action is part of a weeklong festival on campus celebrating Earth Week (April 17 - April 21) in partnership with the Office of Sustainability.
