This global movement needs everyone, at every level, to take bold action to safeguard our planet.

Earth Day 2020 wants to recognize every person, every group, and every action being taken to improve our world– whether it be lifestyle changes that cut emissions, action on plastics pollution, species protection, university and school teach-ins, tree plantings, local and global cleanups, switching to a more plant-based diets, or voting with your wallet and your ballot.

Earth Day Network has relaunched its flagship platform – Billion Acts of Green – to meet the challenge of logging, aggregating, and profiling these meaningful actions by inspiring individuals and organizations around the world. Billion Acts of Green will serve as the overarching umbrella or frame for all actions taken on the EDN website, whether it’s a petition signed, a cleanup hosted, a climate march registered, etc. 

The previous iteration of Billion Acts of Green saw more than 2 billion actions registered. To mark 50 years of Earth Day, we’re setting a 2020 goal of 3.5 billion actions taken, logged, and aggregated around the world.

Help us get there!
