Take Action to Create Sustainable Cities

Join a Global Movement

In order to green our cities and accelerate the world’s transition to a cleaner, more sustainable future, we need to change how our cities operate. We cannot afford to continue polluting our atmosphere and wasting our resources.

With your help, we will call upon cities to invest in clean energy and smart grids, we will overhaul outdated building codes and place a higher emphasis on building efficiency, and we will increase public transportation options and make our vehicles cleaner.

But we need your help to make these things happen. Click on Online Activism to learn how you can make a difference from your computer, or if you want to play a more prominent role in transforming your city, send us an email (greencities@earthday.org).
