Earth Day has been celebrated annually every April 22 since 1970. This is the day to show your support for environmental protection and sustainability. Globally the world coordinates together to have a lot of insightful events around nature, the environment, and what you can do to reduce any impact you may have that is damaging the globe. The leading organizer of these events are earthday.org who coordinates a global event that often includes more than a billion people representing 193 countries.
Earth Day continues to be a unifying day each year to focus on the environment so with that in mind we put together a series of nature and environment-focused events in our special Earth Day series.
Join our special Earth day series to help educate, activate, and inform learners how they can help create an impact in the global environmental movement. Together we can create, implement, and sustain positive actions to help our planet.
