On April 22nd, Earth Day, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has invited a all world leaders to the United Nations to officially sign the Paris Climate Agreement reached in December 2015.
The focus of the Earth Day Network this year is the urgent need to plant new trees and forests across the world. This year they begin the four-year count down to Earth Day’s 50th anniversary, which is in 2020. And the Earth Day Network is pledging to plant 7.8 billion trees – one for every person! You can join in and start a small campaign in your own part of the world and plant trees this earth day. “Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation. They provide food, energy, and income. Trees help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability.” (earthly.org) If you can’t plant a tree you can donate to the cause by clicking here.
On Earth Day, millions of schoolchildren and their teachers will take part in education and programs that will teach them about the importance of clean air and water, how to begin a practice of civic participation and experience the wonders of nature. In almost every country on Earth, citizens will be making demands of their governments to take action to address the climate crises, starting with the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement on April 22nd, Earth Day.
Earth Day is the largest and most active citizen engagement campaign on Earth. To learn more about Earth Day 2016, Trees for the Earth, and how you can get involved, click here.
