10 Online resources for Earth Day 2020

Earth Day 2020 online

April 22nd will be the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

This year, people will gather online rather than in parks. Information will be shared through teleconferences, not classrooms. People who wish to respond to this year’s theme, climate action, will participate and plan in remote sessions.

Other resources in this list include suggested activities for after stay-at-home restrictions are lifted. There are also searchable databases of worldwide virtual events and volunteering opportunities.
