Fifty years ago, Earth Day became the largest people's
protest in the history of the world.
This year, the Earth Day is going digital
for the first time in its history.
We’ll demand that leaders take science seriously,
listen to their people
and push for action
at every level of society
to stop the rising tide
of climate change.
Together, we can make a better world for everyone;
bring your friends and family
and come back here
to make and share
your own promise to the Earth.
With the hashtag #MyPromisefortheEarth
we connect on social media,
to inspire and uplift each other.
This April 22, 2020,
we are facing two crises:
One is immediate from a pandemic
and the other is slowly building as a disaster for our climate.
We can, will, and must solve
The world was not prepared
for a coronavirus.
Leaders ignored hard science and delayed critical actions.
We still have time to prepare
— in every part of the world —
for the climate crisis.
We must act together to say that global disaster
must never happen again;
we must not make
the same mistakes twice.
On its 50th anniversary,
Earth Day will return
to its roots from 1970:
Placing environmental progress among
the best ways to improve our world.
Thanks to heroic actions
around the world,
we will overcome and recover
from the coronavirus.
The world will never be the same,
but maybe it can be better.
We must not allow the return to business,
travel, consumption as usual.
— our future —
depends on it.
Create awareness, take action, and add your voice.
