Each year the global community comes together to increase awareness for the planet we live on and to learn about environmental crises ranging from pollution to climate change to endangered species. April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, which first began in 1970 launching a national and international environmental movement and is now recognized as the planet's largest civic event.
This year, Earth Day celebrations will look a little different as we all try our best to practice social distancing and protect the health of local communities amid the COVID-19 pandemic. NISE Network staff and partners shared resources and virtual activities that can be used to celebrate this year's 50th anniversary of Earth Day and Earth Week (April 18-26). This online workshop was recorded 4-7-2020.
