Education Resources for Earth Day 2020

Engage your students in a variety of our Earth Day 2020 Campaigns

Before the age of social media and the internet, organizers of the first Earth Day in 1970 were able to bring 20 million people together to learn about the environmental problems we faced and act to address them. This was possible because of the incredible passion and motivation of youth and students at the time taking a stand for a cleaner planet for their future.

At Earth Day Network we are working to increase awareness and build environmental and climate literacy in students around the world to protect the planet and make a difference in their communities. For our 50th Anniversary we want to engage 500 million students in Earth Day environmental education activities throughout 2020. We are doing this through strategic global partnerships and developing resources for students and teachers to learn about local environmental issues which equip learners with inspiration and skills for environmental civic action.
