Earth Day Action
Visit Earth Day : We are Counting Down to our 50th!
The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, mobilized 20 million Americans from all walks of life. Their actions led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Today, over one billion people in 192 countries participate in Earth Day activities, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
Organizing an Earth Day event or activity is one of the best ways to engage your community to protect the planet. We are currently in the 5 year countdown to Earth Day’s 50th anniversary (Earth Day 2020)! Over the next few years, in anticipation of this momentous occasion, we are launching a series of bold initiatives that will encourage people to take action in their local communities (the first of these is to plant 7.8 Billion trees by 2020!) We would love for you to be involved in every stage of this process, and will stay engaged with you over the next few years to get your input and to help you with our resources and promotion of your event.
This Toolkit provides resources to help you plan your own Earth Day event and to start thinking about the next few Earth Days as well. If you need additional help or resources, don’t hesitate to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Once you have a plan, let us know and we’ll help you spread the word. Registering your local Earth Day Event lets members of your community easily find it, allows us share our resources with you, and enables us collectively to help save our environment! The bigger the story we can tell on Earth Day, the larger the impact.
