On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day saw 20 million people take to the streets to protest the state of the environment in the U.S. Fifty years and 1 billion people later, EARTHDAY.ORG is the world's largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 190 countries to drive positive action for our planet.
EARTHDAY.ORG's mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. From community-led reforestation projects to riverside cleanups in frontline communities, our global campaigns and partnerships connect people to impactful actions they can take to restore our Earth.
Our world is in crisis and needs transformational change. EARTHDAY.ORG's global recognition lets us unite citizens like no other, and together we demand that our leaders prioritize the climate emergency. We won't stand for inaction any longer.
