The Climate Report 2017/18 - Page 48



Action to support environmental
protection cannot happen on just one
day each year. That’s why Earth Day
Network engages in year-round
programming to advance its
environmental and climate action goals.
Moving into 2017 and beyond, Earth Day
Network will continue developing
educational programming in order to
improve and promote international
climate literacy. Through strategic
advocacy, this suite of educational
programming will reach youths and
young adults around the world, both in
the countries most affected by climate
change, as well as in those that
contribute most to it.
Recognizing the importance of an
educated global population, the authors
of the Paris Climate Agreement put
climate education at its heart, calling on
national governments to cooperate in
taking measures to enhance climate
education, training and access to
information.

Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda held Earth Festivals in various communities of the
Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve with an objective to preserve, showcase, and
take pride in the Sierra Gorda’s roots and traditions, and to encourage growth
of an environmentally-conscious culture.
Therefore, in the lead up to Earth Day's 50th
anniversary in 2020, Earth Day Network will
continue its campaign to bring climate and
environmental literacy to the world.

Once focused on teaching the science of
the natural world, environmental education
has since evolved. It now embraces the
concepts of sustainable development,
promoting the economic values associated
with the transition to a green economy including jobs and opportunities for
entrepreneurship. Earth Day Network’s focus
is to ensure that youth can internalize these
values of climate and environmental
education, and recognize that the jobs of the
future belong to those who understand not
just information about the environment, but
also the potential for economic growth.
