April 22, 2020 - Earth Day
April 22, 2020 marks 50 years of Earth Day.
The first Earth Day sparked the passage in the U.S. of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts, and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.
The urgency has never been greater, and the stakes have never been higher – we are now in an environmental emergency and a climate breakdown. We have two crises: One is the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The other is a slowly building disaster for our climate.
On Earth Day 2020,
We say enough is enough.
We say we believe in science. We say that everyone can make a difference.
We say that the protection of our planet and the well-being of the people who live upon it are the top priorities.
We say that we’re committing to vote, we’re registering to vote and we’re showing up to vote.
Human health and planetary health are inextricably linked.
Will you join this global movement as we build toward the next half century of action for our planet?
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE, EVERYONE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!
While Earth Day may be going digital, our goal remains the same:
to mobilize the world to take the most meaningful actions possible to change the world.
TUNE INTO EARTH DAY LIVE
On April 22-24, millions of people around the world go online for a three-day mobilization to stop the climate emergency. Tune in to Earth Day Live to watch, discuss and participate in a live stream featuring stories, performances and opportunities for digital collective action.

THE GREAT GLOBAL (SOLO) CLEANUP: Our planet’s waterways and environment are overflowing with litter, especially plastic. Commit today to safely and individually cleaning up your neighborhood. Let’s clean up our planet — one piece at a time.
MAKE YOUR NEXT MEAL PLANT-BASED: What we eat is important. For your next meal, we urge you to make a climate conscious choice and eat plant-based.
GO CLEAN ENERGY: Consumer demand for renewable energy sources is one of the most immediate actions you can take to lower your carbon footprint. As the cost of constructing renewable energy sources like wind, solar and geothermal decreases, renewable energy is now an economical option for utilities.
CREATE FOR THE EARTH: Art works in ways that science alone cannot, making climate change personal, engaging people’s hearts and inspiring the will to change. Art has the power to reach people personally, establishing a deeper understanding and emotional connection with what is happening to our planet.
