April 22 is Earth Day

This unified response to an environment in crisis started in the U.S. back in 1970. That very first event gathered 20 million Americans — 10% of the population at the time — to protest environmental ignorance and demand a new way forward for our planet. Earth Day is often said to have been the start of the environmental movement and it is still the world’s largest civic event.

50 YEARS OF ACTIVISM
April 22, 2020 will mark 50 years of Earth Day and the theme for this jubilee event is climate action. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.

Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement all over the globe. With 75,000 partners in over 190 countries, it is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement. Their mission? To drive positive action for our planet.
