This April marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day around the world and this year could be the biggest Earth Day yet. This year, Earth Day Network is expecting to see one of the most exciting years in environmental history.
The very first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970 where it activated over 20 million Americans from all walks of life. On this day, Earth Day was credited with launching the largest modern environmental movement and now it is a celebrated day amongst people around the world. After the first Earth Day, the Earth Day Network has joined forces with over 50,000 partners in 192 countries to “broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement.” Now there are more than a billion people that partake in Earth Day activities and fight for our global environment, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
Earth Day Network takes great pride in “greening” schools, promoting environmental education, accelerating the global green economy, protecting the world’s canopies, greening cities, ensuring clean water and so much more.
The famed Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day Concert is going to be star studded this year and will take place at the Washington Monument Grounds, Saturday April 18. The concert will feature performances from Usher, No Doubt, Fall Out Boy, Mary J Blige and more!
