On April 18, Fordham London celebrated Earth Day with a fun slate of festivities while marking the formal launch of Our Common Home: Fordham’s Environmental Action Plan.

The celebration featured several events throughout the day, including a sustainability quiz and an herb and tomato planting on the rooftop terrace. Invited guest speaker Jessica Sweidan, founder and trustee of Synchronicity Earth, a UK-registered charity focusing on global environmental conservation, gave a talk for those in attendance. Attendees were able to donate unwanted clothes and other household items for reuse and recycling. Vegetarian and vegan lunches were served using ingredients that had traveled the lowest amount of food miles possible.
