Celebrate Earth Day by joining University of Miami Random Acts of Kindness in the 11th annual Hug the Lake at Lake Osceola at noon on Friday, April 21. Free donuts will be available for green booth participants and free eco-friendly shirts will be provided to everyone who joins the group hug, which will take just 15 minutes. President Frenk will make opening remarks, including the presentation of the inaugural Roberta “Bosey” Fulbright Foote Prize to a member of the UM community who has made a meaningful and lasting contribution to the beauty, humanity, and future of the campus.
Other Earth Day celebration events will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Lakeside Patio, where visitors can learn about sustainable living in our region from the University’s Green Fair partners, win smart prizes (reusable water bottles, recycled fiber bags, Ben & Jerry vouchers, and other items) and enjoy a concert by the Frost School of Music bands, who will play a NET ZERO ENERGY concert. And don’t forget to drop by the UC lounge to see the surprising and eco-minded work of Professor Billie Lynn.
