The year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. We must seize this moment to inspire global actions that safeguard the earth against the unprecedented challenges of the 21st century.

In the four years leading up to 2020, Earth Day Network will launch a series of bold, thematic initiatives to galvanize unparalleled global collaboration.

Earth Day 2016’s theme was Trees for the Earth. That year we set the ambitious goal of planting 7.8 billion trees – one for every person on the planet – by Earth Day 2020.

The theme for Earth Day 2017 is Environmental and Climate Literacy. Before we can solve the dire environmental threats facing us in the 21st century, we must build a global citizenry knowledgeable in environmental science and fluent in local and global ecological issues.

For Earth Day 2017 we’re launching toolkits to give schools, colleges, and community groups across the world the resources to hold their own teach-ins for Environmental and Climate Literacy or other Earth Day events.
