April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In the 50 years since the first Earth Day in 1970, there have been some victories in the struggle to protect our planet. But today, we face a grave threat to the Earth’s ecosystems from global heating, biodiversity loss, and habitat destruction.

Now, more than ever, the Earth needs us to step up and act. We need the courage to raise our voices, to heed the insights from traditional cultures and to advocate for strategies informed by science.

We must speak knowledgeably and powerfully for the policies that will provide a just recovery so that all life on this planet can flourish for generations to come. What will the next 50 years bring?

Our response to the COVID emergency demonstrates that the world can effectively deal with the climate emergency! Join us for a live webcast designed to explore how we can create a Just Recovery and a healthy future for the planet.

Come and be inspired to take action in a renewed climate movement!
