Earth Day 2017 - Environmental & Climate Literacy

Earth Day Network’s mission is to “broaden and diversify the environmental movement worldwide and to mobilize it as the most effective vehicle to build a healthy, sustainable environment, address climate change, and protect the Earth for future generations.”

According to the website, http://www.earthday.org/earth-day, the first Earth Day occurred in 1970. The movement gave an organized voice to an emerging consciousness, and began the work of channeling our attention toward environmental issues. Earth Day is entering its 47th year and continues to inspire and motivate people to action.

Earth Day is to be celebrated on April 22, 2017 and this year’s campaign is “Environmental and Climate Literacy”.

The Earth Day Network states that “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 our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
