Toolkits Earth Day 2017

This Earth Day, We are launching an ambitious goal of achieving global climate and environmental literacy by Earth Day 2020. Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry, which is fluent in the concepts of climate change, and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with knowledge to act in defense of environmental protection. To help you craft your Earth Day 2017 events, Earth Day Network has developed toolkit resources specialized to your community, accessible below.

Earth Day Network has created this toolkit so that you, the environmentally-minded citizen, can create tangible change by organizing and coordinating Earth Day events in your local

TEACH-INS The featured event idea for Earth Day 2017 is a teach-in. Teach-ins will educate your community about environmental issues and empower your community to take informed civic action to protect the environment.

We invite local leaders to participate in the annual Global Day of Conversation, a platform for leaders to engage with their communities in conversations on challenges and opportunities related to sustainability.

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.

Each year we invite K-12 educators to join Earth Day Network and incorporate climate and environmental curriculum into their lesson plans during Climate Education Week: April 22-29, 2017.

This year’s Climate Education Week Toolkit is a web-based, cross-disciplinary resource that includes a range of curricula, lesson plans, educational activities and films, and much more that will engage students to be fluent in local environmental issues, and tackle the unprecedented challenge of climate change.

Stewardship of the planet and the faith tradition are intrinsically linked.
