Earth Day 50 Goes Digital
At Earth Day Network, we understand the difficulties that COVID-19 presents and the challenges that you and your communities may be facing. Above all, we prioritize your health and encourage you to do whatever is safest during this time and follow the direction of your local authorities. We remain committed to supporting your Earth Day initiatives despite school closures and event cancellations.
Due to these circumstances, April 22 will mark the first Digital Earth Day, a global digital mobilization to address the most urgent threats to people and the planet. Digital Earth Day will use some of the world’s most innovative digital media platforms to mobilize millions in a collective call for climate action. Please refer to our press release for more information about the shift to digital global mobilizations.
We are in awe of the incredible collaboration of organizations working to provide free resources and support for families and students who are adjusting and now learning at home. Now more than ever we are grateful to have our partners by our side working to support our communities. To do our part, we are working on a landing page for free online environmental education resources that you can use and share from anywhere! In the meantime, check out our Education Resource Library for lessons and activities for any day of the year.
We hope you’ll stay with us as we shift to digital platforms and will be in touch shortly with ways you can continue to participate. We would love to hear from you and how you are adapting your Earth Day plans!
In the face of a challenge that unites us all, whether it be Coronavirus or our global climate crisis, we cannot shut down. Instead, we must shift our energies and efforts to new ways to mobilize the world to action.
All the best,
Earth Day Education
