Earth Day Network has made significant inroads across India and now has a permanent Indian Program – EDN India – located in Kolkata.

All across this populous, diverse country, Earth Day Network’s message continues to resonate. It is leading to significant progress in renewable energy, sustainable urban development, in mobilizing the youth, building environmental stewardship, increasing green cover, and in fostering clean energy education amongst women in rural areas.

EDN India is vital to our overall mission to broaden and diversify the environmental movement worldwide.
