Earth Day Network and The Smithsonian Museum’s Earth Optimism

To commemorate the 50thAnniversary of Earth Day in 2020, Earth Day Network and Smithsonian Institution’s Earth Optimism team are developing a global initiative that will help people envision and achieve a positive future. To launch the initiative, Earth Day convened a Global Leadership Forum in October, 2018 where more than 80 representatives from around the globe were represented to explore how museums, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens, and research centers can develop resources and programs for Earth Day 2020. The meeting focused ideas for programs and exhibits that will inspire new audiences, especially youth, with content, media, and resources that increase relevancy to daily lives and create a vision and success stories that can serve as models that can be replicable and scalable and inspire multiple generations to understand and sustain a healthy and diverse planet.
