WORLD EARTH DAY 2021

Thursday 22nd April 2021 is World Earth Day. World Earth Day’s purpose is to change, teach and activate the environmental movement worldwide.

The first Earth Day was in 1970! Since then World Earth Day has continued to expand and now is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement. More than 75,000 partners in over 190 countries help drive this movement. Here is how World Earth Day is to work in 2021:

Tuesday 20 April:

Earth Day 2021 begins with a global youth climate summit led by Earth Uprising, in collaboration with My Future My Voice, OneMillionOfUs and hundreds of youth climate activists.

The global youth summit will consist of panels, speeches, discussions, and special messages with today’s youth climate activists including Greta Thunberg, Alexandria Villaseñor, and Licypriya Kangujam.

In the evening on April 20, the Hip Hop Caucus and its partners will present the “We Shall Breathe” virtual summit. This digital event will examine climate and environmental justice, connecting the climate crisis to issues of pollution, poverty, police brutality, and the pandemic, all within a racial justice framework.

Wednesday 21 April:

Education International will lead the “Teach for the Planet: Global Education Summit.”

The multilingual virtual summit will span several time zones and feature prominent activists from every continent, focused on the crucial role that educators play in combating climate change and why we need transformative climate education now. 

Thursday 22 April (World Earth Day):

Parallel to the Biden Administration’s global climate summit, EARTHDAY.ORG will have its second Earth Day Live digital event.

Workshops, panel discussions, and special performances will focus on Restore Our Earth™ — they will cover natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.
