Groundwork Denver, whose mission is to bring about the sustained improvement of the physical environment and promote health and well-being through community-based partnerships and action, joins thousands of other groups and entities world-wide dedicated to make stepped-up environmental action a corner stone in this crucial year.
Groundwork Denver partners acts by planting trees, improving parks, cleaning up rivers and the air, insulating houses, promoting biking, growing food, and coordinates hundreds of volunteers. Groundwork Denver supports the growth and development of leaders from the neighborhoods where we work through their Green Team youth employment and leadership program and their work promotes the inclusion of the diverse population of our communities in decision-making and action.
Earth Day 2020 comes 50 years after the first Earth Day which, in 1970, mobilized over 20 million citizens to demand action on the environmental challenges of the time.
Today Earth Day is observed in around 190 countries and mobilizes one billion people and close to 100,000 organizations.
The overarching theme for Earth Day 2020, April 22, is action on climate change.
