Athletes for the Earth

Meet our Athletes for the Earth

Earth Day Network’s Athletes for the Earth™ campaign brings Olympic and professional athletes to the environmental movement as spokespeople for Earth Day and for increased environ- mental awareness and activism.

Since being launched at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Athletes for the Earth’s goal has been to:

  • Harness voices of athletes to address climate change.
  • Illustrate the interaction of athletes with their environment.
  • Connect popular athletic activities with environmental stewardship.
  • Promote role models for young people.
  • Express athletes’ unique dependence on healthy climate conditions that allow them to compete.
  • Promote environmental stewardship through PSAs and public appearances.

For 2017, Toyota is the exclusive corporate partner of Athletes for the Earth, a role that we hope to maintain and grow through the 2020 Olympics.
