The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are celebrating Sustainability Month this May as part of the Year of Science 2009. The Coalition on the Public Understanding of Science (COPUS), the creators of the Year of Science 2009, are attempting to promote science in peoples everyday lives and engage the public.

Highlighting the need to meet our needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, Sustainability Month addresses the EPA’s efforts in sharing ideas for a sustainable future. This includes connecting with the public through blogs, podcasts and demonstrations of the importance of sustainability in our communities, and encouraging our youth to be more involved in science.
