More than 50 on- and off-campus organizations and departments set up on Risman Plaza for Earth Fest Wednesday.

 The event, hosted by the Kent State University Earth Month Planning Committee and the Office of Sustainability, celebrated all areas of sustainability, including prosperity (economy), people (social) and planet (environment).

At top, David Pereplyotchik, an assistant professor of philosophy, represents the Democratic Socialists of America as he explains the philosophical implications of climate change and sustainability.
