The movement continues. We are now entering the 47th year of a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action.
In 1970, the year of the first Earth Day, the movement gave voice to an emerging consciousness, channeling human energy toward environmental issues. Forty-six years later, we continue to lead with groundbreaking ideas and by the power of our example.
And so it begins. Today. Right here and right now. Earth Day is more than just a single day — April 22, 2017. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand.
This Earth Day and beyond, let’s make big stuff happen. Let’s plant 7.8 billion trees for the Earth. Let’s divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100% renewable. Let’s take the momentum from the Paris Climate Summit and build on it.
Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.

Environmental & Climate Literacy campaign
Education is the foundation for progress. It is needed to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. It is needed to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.
This Earth Day, gather with your community for an Environmental & Climate Literacy Teach-In or another project focused on education. Earth Day Network (EDN) is launching Earth Day and Teach-In toolkits that will lay out the steps for holding a successful event. Register your event with EDN and Earth Day Network will support you with promotion and advice.
