Be an Earth Advocate – Earth Day 2010 Events

Jump-start Earth Day’s 40th Anniversary Year

The world, now in greater peril than ever, also has unprecedented opportunity to build a new future. In 2010, April 22, the 40th anniversary of the first global Earth Day, we have the collective power to bring about historic advances in individual, civic, corporate, national and international commitments to sustainability. Earth Day Network, a nonprofit organization that spearheads care for the Earth among 17,000 partners and collaborating organizations, sees this year as pivotal.

“Earth Day is a catalyst for environmental change—40 years and 190 countries strong,” says Denis Hayes, the original Earth Day organizer and an Earth Day Network board member. Together, he says, “We will ignite this generation, the Green Generation, with the vigor and passion of the first Earth Day.”
