Earth Day 2017
Earth Day 2017's Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy.
Earth Day Network is launching a campaign for global environmental and climate literacy by Earth Day 2020. They want to ensure that every student around the world graduates high school as an environmental and climate literate citizen, ready to take action and be a voice for change. This goal is not only an enormous undertaking, it is critical and timely. The signing of the Paris Agreement is one step towards mitigating the impacts of climate change. Education needs to be a key part of this effort.
To accomplish this goal, they are returning to the strategy of the first Earth Day in 1970: Teach-Ins. Building and supporting coordinated teach-ins around the world where communities will gather to learn about local environmental issues and develop the civic engagement techniques necessary to take action.
