April 22 marks the celebration of Earth Day! It is a day where people around the world take a closer look at protecting our environment and appreciating the world we live in.
Find out more about Earth Day through the Earth Day Network. Here is an excerpt from their site:
Earth Day Network works year-round on projects, programs, and campaigns that support environmental conservation, environmental protection, climate activism and advocacy, and advancing the green economy. Our education work focuses on efforts to green schools — from energy efficiency upgrades to improving school food — and supporting educators with resources to teach and inspire the next generation of environmental leaders. Our conservation and greening efforts include planting trees to reforest environmentally critical areas of the globe and increase the urban tree canopy, and protecting clean air and water. Our advocacy efforts focus on engaging local leaders and global citizens of all ages and from all walks of life with campaigns: to end plastic pollution, to protect our species, to act on climate and advance clean energy, and more.
2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In honor of this milestone, Earth Day Network is launching an ambitious set of goals to shape the future of 21st century environmentalism. Learn more here.
