Earth Week 2020 Goes Digital with Stay Home Events
Join digital events for Earth Week starting April 20th. The annual week’s activities and the celebration of Earth Day are now virtual to adjust to the stay home mandates around the world. This year’s theme is climate action and will be celebrated all year.
This Wednesday April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. The world is facing it’s most horrific crisis — the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. There is a second global crisis boiling that is a slowly building disaster for our climate.
Human health and planetary health are inextricably linked. To protect one, we must protect the other. Millions rallied behind this idea to create the first Earth Day in 1970. Fifty years later it’s dire to rally behind it again.
Climate Restoration Takes the Stage as Earth Week Goes Digital
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced everyone to alter their 2020 plans. The Foundation for Climate Restoration, Earth Day Network and Global Mind together are moving their efforts forward digitally in April to ensure a habitable planet for youth and future generations.
The Foundation for Climate Restoration is partnering with Earth Day Network and GlobalMindED for a weeklong series of activities to highlight increased climate action. Join them virtually in the activities below throughout the week.

The only thing that will change the world is a bold and unified demand for a new way forward.
We may be apart, but through the power of digital media, we’re also more connected than ever. While you may feel isolated, you’re never alone, because we’re all in this together, here on Earth.

This week finds us Socially Sparked® on two of our world’s crucial issues. There is positive, yet cautious movement in crushing the curve of the global pandemic that has isolated our lives. And, real hope to the slow re-opening. The second belongs to climate action and Earth Week. While we stay at home in lockdown, we have plenty of choices to join digital events to advocate for restoring the climate for a better world. — We are forever #SociallySparked Tweet @sosparkednews & @asparks01
