Earth Day
April 22
Earth Day Network's mission is to broaden and diversify the environmental movement worldwide and to mobilize it as the most effective vehicle to build a healthy, sustainable environment, address climate change, and protect the Earth for future generations.

Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network is the world's largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 500,000 partners in 196 countries to build environmental democracy. Earth Day Network works through a combination of education, public policy, and consumer campaigns.

The first Earth Day on 22 April 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.  The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Art, and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.  Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage.  More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the worlds.
