FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 22, 2017
On Earth Day 2017, Earth Day Network is launching new experiences on Google Search and the Google Assistant that will spread knowledge and content about environmental issues and Earth Day events onto mobile devices, desktop computers and into people’s homes.
Earth Day is the first environmental organization ever to integrate with the Google Assistant and create an experience for Google Home, a voice activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant. The Google Assistant responds to voice commands, answers questions and is always ready to help. It offers real time answers and info on weather, traffic, finance and sports. Now, on Earth Day and for the days that follow, you can get info directly from Earth Day about animals and biodiversity, oceans and climate, trees and forestation, how Earth Day got started in 1970 and much more. Start out by saying, “OK Google, talk to Earth Day.”
Earth Day Network is posting directly on Google Search, too for the days surrounding Earth Day, April 20 through 23. Content changes eight times a day and not only include videos, important information and Earth Day messages, it also extends the live experience with a broadcast from the Earth Day March for Science on the National Mall in Washington DC on April 22. Just Google “Earth Day” and watch as the customized user experience comes alive.
Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 50,000 partners in nearly 200 countries to build environmental democracy. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
