Environmental & Climate Literacy

What is Earth Day?

The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network works in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

Earth Day 2017 is Saturday, April 22.
