EARTH DAY 2017:
CLIMATE & ENVIRONMENTAL LITERACY
In the four years leading up to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020,
Earth Day Network (EDN) has launched a series of bold, thematic
initiatives to galvanize unparalleled global collaboration to meet
ambitious global environmental protection goals.
For Earth Day 2017, Earth Day Network launched the goal of global
environmental and climate literacy by 2020. EDN envisions a world that is
fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its
unprecedented threat to our planet. Environmental and climate literacy
is the engine not only for
creating green voters and
advancing environmental and
climate laws and policies, but
also for accelerating green
technologies and jobs.
To that end, this year’s theme is
environmental and climate
education. Earth Day Network
knows that education is the
foundation for progress. Before
we can solve the dire
environmental threats facing us in the 21st century, we must build a
global citizenry knowledgeable in environmental science and fluent in
local and global ecological issues. A world with a more educated
populace institutionalizes values - such as environmental protection - and
is empowered to act in defense of these values.
