Fifty years ago, the first Earth Day started an environmental revolution. The theme of Earth Day 2021 is Restore Our Earth, we are igniting an education revolution to save the planet.
Climate change and other environmental degradations have broken our natural systems, leading to new and fatal diseases as well as a breakdown of the global economy. But just as climate change and coronavirus painfully remind us of the harm we’ve caused, Restore Our Earth reminds us of the opportunities that lay ahead.
We must Restore Our Earth not just because we care about the natural world, but because we live on it. Every one of us needs a healthy Earth to support our jobs, livelihoods, health & survival, and happiness. A healthy planet is not an option — it is a necessity.
One effort after Earth Day 2021 will be our global push for climate literacy, so the leaders of tomorrow can prepare solutions today. Learn more and sign on to support the effort here: EarthDay.org
