Green Cities

48 Years and Counting

EDN’s Board Chair Emeritus Denis Hayes was only 25 when he made a huge mark on the environmental movement — as the National Coordinator of the very first Earth Day (more on the history). Hayes recently gave an interview to Mongabay about that first Earth Day, our current campaign to End Plastic Pollution, and his work on sustainability as President of the Bullitt Center, which marks Earth Day with Earth Day Celebration Tours.
