Earth Day, celebrated this year on April 22, was created with the mission of educating and activating an environmental movement worldwide. From its humble beginnings in 1970, Earth Day has grown to include more than 150,000 partners in nearly 192 countries – and over 1 billion people participating in Earth Day activities each year.
This year’s festivities include three separate parallel climate action summits on April 20 and 21 ahead of the Biden Administration’s global leaders’ climate summit, focusing on climate literacy, environmental justice and a broad range of youth-led climate-focused issues. Earth Week will also bring thousands of groups and millions of voices together to stand up for climate action and bring awareness to humanity’s greatest existential threat.
