    CIEDM-ISERI 10th Annual Arbor/Earth Day Workshop – Great March for Climate Action

    Organizers:  California Institute of Environmental Design & Management (CIEDM) & International Scholars & Entrepreneurs Research Institute (ISERI).  We are proudly to present our annual commitment to hold event for Arbor/Earth Days.


    Background:  March 20 is the first day of Spring. In the ending of winter and beginning of spring season, March is always a special month to embrace the spring.  Kicking off by the Great March for Climate Action from Los Angeles to Washington DC, organized by fellow Climate Leaders and others, March is full of special awareness days reminding us as earth habitants to be environmental friendly. To celebrate and raise public awareness of those special environmental days, CIEDM & ISERI with its sustainability & educational missions will, as in the past, hold a free workshop on March 2nd. The environmental days in March are:


    3.1-11.1       The Great March for Climate Action

    3.3-9            Climate Week, National Invasive Species Awareness Week

    3.7-14          California Arbor Week

    3. 9-15         National Groundwater Awareness Week

    3.17-23        National Wildlife Week, Fix a Leak Week

    3.21             World Forestry Day/International Day of Forests

    3.22             World Water Day

    3.23             World Meteorological Day, Earth Hour at 8:30 pm


    Objectives:  CIEDM & ISERI serve as a local partner and community campaigner to support the international, national & regional sponsors of those awareness events. The workshop aims to promote information sharing and public engagement in those events, and to expand the awareness to the general public through the workshop attendants. To meet our objectives, the event has been registered with Climate week, World Water Day, Tree-Nation, & & Earth Hour.
