It's Wednesday, April 22, 2020… aka EARTH DAY.
Go live with EarthDay.org for plenty of conversations on how to help the planet: https://www.earthday.org/earth-day-live/
On Earth day, April 22, 2020, we will face two crises: One is immediate from a pandemic and the other is slowly building as a disaster for our climate.
We can, will, and must solve both challenges. The world was not prepared for a coronavirus. Leaders ignored hard science and delayed critical actions. We still have time to prepare — in every part of the world — for the climate crisis.
EARTHRISE is how we set a new global standard on Earth Day 2020. We must act together to say that global disaster must never happen again; we must not make the same mistakes twice.
This page has the tools for you to build towards a world-changing Earth Day. On its 50th anniversary, Earth Day will return to its roots from 1970: Placing environmental progress among the best ways to improve our world.
Thanks to heroic actions around the world, we will overcome and recover from the coronavirus. Life will return to normal, but we must not allow the return to business as usual. Our planet — our future — depends on it. Find inspiration here to take action, read other stories, and add your voice to the map. As we overcome this immediate crisis, we will tell the world that we are ready to solve the next one.
You can start taking action right now on this page. Scroll through to learn more, and add your action to the map below. You can add actions that you create yourself, too.
Be ambitious! Earth Day is not a time for small ideas. Take time to read other actions on the map below, browse this page, and think about how you want to make a difference.
The more people take action, the more change we’ll see. You can grow your impact in two ways: Posting to the map and spreading the word.
1. Add to the map. Show that you’re a part of the movement by recording your action. Inspire others, talk about lessons learned, and let the world know that you’re taking a way forward.
2. Spread the word. Bring in your friends and family to join you! The most important thing you do may be to get others involved. Reach out to a family member looking to take action, or a student who you want to engage. Start small with a goal of three people, and see how many you can reach!
