It’s our turn to lead: Earth Day celebrates 45th anniversary.

This year’s Earth Day campaigns: 


April 22nd marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. More than 1 billion people in 192 countries will take actions on Earth Day events this year, making it the largest environmental civic action in the world. Through Earth Day and our year round programs, Earth Day Network is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement.

This year’s Earth Day theme, It’s our turn to lead is focused on delivering millions of voices to push global leaders to take action on climate change, the environment, and the connection between poverty and climate change. Earth Day is a stepping stone on the road to Paris, where the world’s leaders will meet to sign a global treaty on climate change
