Restore our Earth. That’s the theme for Earth Day 2021, coming up on April 22, 2021. How are you celebrating Earth Day? There’s so much you can do to help restore our planet, from joining a cleanup, planting trees, and civic action to hosting an event online or in your community.
This Earth Day, we have an important opportunity to challenge world leaders to see climate change for what it is — a pressing global security threat, one that threatens everyone and everything but particularly our most vulnerable people and places.” –Kathleen Rogers, president of Earthday.org

One of the easiest ways to take action is by participating in a local cleanup. Find a cleanup near you on the Great Global Cleanup interactive map.

Host an Earth Day Event
If you’d like to host an Earth Day event, EARTHDAY.ORG has guidance for planning a teach-in, a digital event, or an online community climate discussion. You can find graphics, social media guidelines, and more information in the Earth Day Action Toolkit. Be sure and register your event so others can participate.
You can also host a cleanup as part of the Great Global Cleanup. Make sure you follow safety guidelines to keep all volunteers safe.
