Earth Day 2017’s theme is Environmental & Climate Literacy.
Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to the planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Earth Day Network launched its higher education campaign, MobilizeU, in 2012. MobilizeU is an international movement of concerned and active students and administrators uniting around their common interest of environmental action in support of a sustainable future for all.
This year, MobilizeU will play a critical role as the Higher Education ambassador for Earth Day. Start the conversation and the community action on your campus by organizing an Environmental & Climate Literacy Teach-In.
