ABOUT EARTH DAY 2020:



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.



To meet this moment, we must build the largest, most diverse online mobilization in history in defense of the environment. Our world needs a united response for bold action.



* 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 wellbeing of the people who live upon it are the top priorities.


* On Earth Day 2020, 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?

THE PLAN:


Over the 24 hours of Earth Day (12:01 am ET - 11:59 pm ET on April 22), Earth Day Network will flood the digital landscape with global conversations, calls to action, performances, video teach-ins and more. That’s where you come in.



On April 22, join us for 24 hours of action on earthday.org as we issue a new call to action every hour for 24 hours. Through 24 hours of action, Earth Day 2020 will drive actions big and small, give diverse voices a platform and demand bold action for people and the planet.



Over the 24 hours of Earth Day (12:01 am ET - 11:59 pm ET on April 22), Earth Day Network will fill the digital landscape with global conversations, calls to action, performances, video teach-ins and more.



And tune into Earth Day Live on April 22 -24 as millions of people around the world go online for a three-day mobilization to stop the climate emergency.

Tune in to Earth Day Live April 22-24 to watch, discuss and participate in a livestream featuring stories, performances and opportunities for digital collective action.



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.



No matter where you are, you can make a difference.
