Resources for Earth Day 2021

Earth Day is just a few weeks away (April 22, 2021), and there are so many ways to celebrate and participate in this global event.  This year, invites everyone to join thousands of organizations as they come together for “Three Days of Climate Action” which will take place April 20-22, 2021.

As posted on their website, EARTHDAY.ORG along with Education International, Hip Hop Caucus, and Earth Uprising are organizing three separate parallel climate action summits on April 20 and 21 ahead of the Biden Administration’s global leaders’ climate summit. On Earth Day, April 22, global activists, international leaders, and influencers will get together for the second-annual multi-hour Earth Day Live.

The parallel summits are focused 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. For more information on the schedule and details of speakers and activities for each day, check out their latest press release.
