Earth Day is an annual event on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First held on April 22, 1970, it now includes a wide range of events coordinated globally by EarthDay.org (formerly Earth Day Network) including 1 billion people in more than 193 countries
This is the moment to change it all — the business climate, the political climate, and how we take action on climate. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods.
Marked by millions around the world, Earth Day is an annual event designed to shine a light on the serious environmental problems we’re facing, from the climate crisis to air pollution and deforestation.
Earth Day organisers have suggested a number of ways to get involved via its handy toolkit, including supporting its campaigns for a global plastics treaty, for change in the fashion industry and to stop deforestation. There are also thousands of events taking place around the world – find out what’s happening near you via this map, from tree-planting to clean-up activities. If there’s nothing currently happening in your area, why not organise your own event?
For Earth Day 2022, the theme is Invest in Our Planet we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.
