Media Advisory: Six-month countdown to Earth Day | Earth Day Network

October 16, 2019, Global Release

This Tuesday, October 22, Earth Day Network and thousands of partners will launch the six-month countdown to Earth Day with major announcements across some of our global campaigns for action. The urgency has never been greater, and the stakes have never been higher. As Earth Day reaches its milestone 50th Anniversary in April 2020, nature and the environment face enormous challenges from loss of biodiversity, pollution, degradation of our ecosystems, and climate change. For many reasons, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day will mark a pivotal year for our planet.

Our campaigns are intended to activate at least a billion people worldwide to meet Earth Day’s 2020 theme, climate action:

  • EARTHRISE, an intergenerational global movement for climate action that will mobilize around the world on April 22, 2020
  • The Great Global Cleanup, a worldwide campaign to remove billions of pieces of trash from neighborhoods, beaches, rivers, lakes, trails, and parks — reducing waste and plastic pollution, improving habitats, and preventing harm to wildlife and humans.
  • Earth Challenge, the largest-ever global citizen science initiative, which will arm everyday individuals with the tools they need to report on the health and wellbeing of the environment, from their drinking water, to their air quality, to the species around them.
  • Foodprints for the Future, a collaboration with individuals, communities, and partners across all sectors to address one of the largest contributors to climate change facing us today: our food system
  • Artists for the Earth, a global campaign bringing artists from around the world in every discipline, using the power of their art to express our common humanity.

Join the call on Tuesday at 9:30 – 10:30 am EDT as a dozen of the world’s leading voices for our planet share announcements, 2020 plans, and messages of support for a global mobilization in defense of the environment. Full call-in details are listed below.
