Earth Day 2014 – Green Cities
Get involved with Earth Day!
Every year on April 22, over
a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day. From San
Francisco to San Juan, Beijing to Brussels, Moscow to Marrakesh, people
plant trees, clean up their communities, contact their elected
officials, and more—all on behalf of the environment.
Like Earth Days of the past,
Earth Day 2014 will focus on the unique environmental challenges of our
time. As the world’s population migrates to cities, and as the bleak
reality of climate change becomes increasingly clear, the need to create
sustainable communities is more important than ever. Earth Day 2014
will seek to do just that through its global theme: Green Cities. With
smart investments in sustainable technology, forward-thinking public
policy, and an educated and active public, we can transform our cities
and forge a sustainable future. Nothing is more powerful than the
collective action of a billion people.
