    Save the Date: Environmental Day (E-Day) 2025!

    Environmental Day (E-Day) at the WV State Capitol is WVEC’s annual day of citizen advocacy. 

    E-Day allows WVEC members to meet at the state Capitol, set up displays and exhibits showcasing their work and activism, and meet with legislators to discuss issues of concern. E-Day also includes a rally with advocates and legislators to discuss critical environmental issues and promote legislation.

    In 2023, we expanded our focus and invited students from West Virginia colleges and universities to attend, display their environmental work and meet with their legislators. This is part of WVEC’s emerging effort to engage with students, learn about and support their environmental protection and justice work, and share information about West Virginia’s many environmental organizations and opportunities to get involved.

    While specific details may vary, the commitment to environmental advocacy remains a constant thread in the fabric of E-Day’s legacy.

    What to expect:

    • Legislative Insight: Gain firsthand experience of the legislative process and see the legislature at work.
    • Capitol Exploration: Immerse yourself in the history of the West Virginia Capitol with guided tours.
    • Connect with Environmental Advocates: Network with environmental groups committed to a sustainable future for West Virginia.
    • Advocate for Change: Be a part of advocacy efforts supporting the WVEC’s legislative priorities.

    E-Day 2025 will take place on Monday, March 17, from 9 am – 2 pm! Please note the 2025 legislative session will commence on February 12 and conclude on April 12, a little later than usual. See highlights and coverage from 2024 E-Day here

    Get involved! If your nonprofit wishes to showcase its work, consider registering for a table at E-Day. Participation is always free! If you know of student groups interested in participating, please reach out to us at WVECevents@gmail.com. Registration will be open soon, sign up for alerts here.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at WVECevents@gmail.com.

    See you there!
