This Spring’s Pratt Earth Action Week will continue to focus on the ongoing and intersecting crises of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the racial and social justice protests that have brought into relief systemic inequalities and unsustainable systems. This Earth Action Week will align with the creative, forward-thinking, and solutions-driven spirit of the Pratt community to focus the theme on a just, sustainable, and prosperous recovery.
