Check Out the Earth Day 2010 Action Center!
Earth Day is only a few days away and, like with all other major environmental events, there is a website definitely worth checking out.
The Earth Day 2010 Action Center (part of the Earth Day Network) is a great resource for this year’s big day. On the site, you will find information on events, core issues, and how you can take action, plus links to partner sites that may also have something going on for Earth Day this year. Here’s a list of some key things to check out on the site:
A Billion Acts of Green – How do you live green? What do you plan to do for Earth Day? Post your environmental commitment and read through others here. So far, over 31 million acts have been posted!
The Official Earth Day 2010 Campaign – Join over 1 billion people across 190 countries and take action this Earth Day.
RSVP to The Climate Rally – This Sunday (April 25) a Climate Rally will be happening at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The main focus of the rally is to demand Congress pass a strong climate legislation (which they’ve still failed to do). Notable speakers include Rev. Jesse Jackson, film director James Cameron, and author Margaret Atwood, amongst others. There will also be a number of live musical performances, including Sting, John Legend, Joss Stone, and more. Free buses are available from a number of cities, including Philadelphia, NYC, Cleveland, Baltimore, and others.
You can also make a pledge, sign petitions, and find out if there are any events scheduled for your area (or start one yourself!).
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Let’s do everything we can to make sure it’s the best one yet!
