Celebrate “Earth-Week” 2019 with NEIS! We decided the Earth should get a whole week, not just a day.
NEIS has scheduled a number of events and activities during Earth Week 2019 – a week in which we will observe the 49th Earth Day, and the 33rd anniversary of the Chornobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine.
You won’t end the Nuclear Age by solely sitting in front of a computer screen. Make this a time to come out and publicly display your support for the end of nuclear power, waste and weapons! Come learn, share your thoughts, help out at events, and bring some friends along!
