April Earth Day 

Our annual Earth Day celebration aims to connect our community, particularly children with pressing environmental issues. Delray Beach's Earth Day typically adopts the annual theme put forward by the Earth Day Network, (see www.earthday.org) .  The 2019 event focused on preserving biodiversity, while the 2018 event highlight single-use plastic.  These events have served as a catalyst for policy action, such as the adoption of a platic straw ban in 2019. 

June Daylight Hour

The Daylight Hour campaign is an international social media event aimed at promoting energy savings by highlight the benefits of working by daylight.  Each year hundreds of companies and a growing number of municipal governments participate in the event by turning off non-essential lighting in the workplace for one hour and posting pictures of their participation on social media with the hashtag #daylighthour. Employees are encouraged to work by daylight, and take-home a message of energy conservation.  Recognition is awarded by the Building Exchange for organizations with outstanding and creative participation, The City of Delray Beach has received recognition for the past two years.  

October King Tide

We host an annual climate change educational event around autumnal King Tides to raise awareness in the community about climate change impacts and the need to plan for resilience.  Each year's event has taken on a theme, such as "understanding sea level rise projections", green and gray shorelines, or the economic opportunities in climate adaptation.  Watch for the 2019 event on October 4-5 which will focus on Climate and Art.
