Today is April 22 – Earth Day.
The Earth Day 2012 campaign is designed to provide people with the opportunity to unite their voices in a call for a sustainable future and direct them towards quantifiable outcomes.¹
Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin Senator and environmental activist, called for an environmental teach-in or Earth Day to be held on April 22, 1970. Twenty million people participated that year and is now observed by over 500 million people each year.
Every day, more and more people are helping Earth Day Network to Mobilize the Earth on April 22nd. How will you get involved? Be the next to join this global movement. For more information on how you can participate, visit http://www.earthday.org/2012.²
