Earth Day

with one comment

Today, Tuesday April 22nd, is Earth Day, an annual event that was founded in 1970 and has grown into an international celebration of our collective commitment to building a safer, healthier and prosperous world for all of us, starting in the communities where we live. There are many ways to get involved and no action is too small. On April 22nd, go out and celebrate the earth, volunteer, let your elected officials know your priorities, organize an event – most of all have fun, meet new people, and make a difference where you live.

Download the Relocalization Network’s Action Handbook, outlining examples of relocalization projects, or the Earth Day Network’s Earth Day in a Box toolkit to get started and organize an event! Learn the basics on running a successful event from contacting the media to potential sources of funding. Make use of fliers with tips to reduce energy consumption at home, at school, at work and with your kids, courtesy of the Earth Day Network.

Get a move on. You haven’t got long.

  1. I plan to plant lots of shrubs in my garden. My kid will join in when they get home from school.
