About Earth Day
Every year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Earth Day 1970 gave a voice to an emerging public consciousness about the state of the planet. Today, Earth Day is observed across the globe by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and lead to policy changes. Earth Day aims to channelize the energy, excitement, and youth initiatives towards climate change. It also empowers individuals with the information, the tools, the messaging and the communities needed to make an impact and drive change.
