Earth Day (22 April 2019) is a global event mobilizing millions of people around the world into political and civic participation. Organizations and individuals in more than 190 countries around the world march, sign petitions, meet with elected officials, plant trees, and clean up their towns and roads. Corporations and public sector agencies time their pledges and sustainability measures to this auspicious day.
Look around for opportunities to engage students, parents, and other community leaders on the issues, and check the Earth Day Network for pledges and actions you can implement locally as part of a global initiative. In the next week, set realistic goals for your class, your sports team, or your school and see how you can make a difference.
