For the first time in its history, this year’s Earth Day is celebrated online. Even so, we can still take actions, send messages of hope, and optimism digitally. There are several online events you can join while at the same time take part in protecting our earth.
On 22 April 2020, Earth Day is also celebrating its 50th Anniversary and carries the theme “Climate Action”. Join for 24 hours of action as a new call to action is issued every hour. Through 24 hours of action, Earth Day 2020 will drive actions big and small, give diverse voices a platform and demand bold action for people and the planet. What you can do during the 24 hours of actions, including:
- Share Your Air: Document Your Air Quality with the EC2020 App
- The Great Global (Solo) Cleanup
- Create for the Earth
- Ask for your faith leader to sign the climate action pledge
- Make Climate a Class
- Become a Citizen Scientist
- Make your next meal plant-based
- Reach your Representative
- Act on Plastic Pollution
- Share Your #HopeForEarth
Following those actions, you can also watch Earth Day Live with contents including messages, performance, and callouts for action. Earth Day Live also focuses on two crises, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and slowly building disaster for our climate. Through this event, hopefully we can solve the challenges and reminds us what is at stake in our fight for the planet. While the coronavirus may force us to keep our distance, it will not force us to keep our voices down. 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.
