Celebrating Earth Day 2012

If you’re looking for something special to do on April 22, The Earth Day Network (EDN) website offers a clearinghouse of events and activities to commemorate the day.

For those wanting to get involved on a more regular basis, EDN works year-round with over 22,000 partners and organizations in 192 countries to pursue its mission to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement through a variety of education, public policy, and activism campaigns.

Some of its programs include:

  • Green Schools Campaign, in partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council and The Clinton Foundation, aims to green all of America’s K-12 schools within a generation. EDN’s Educator’s Network, used by over 30,000 teachers nationwide, provides innovative education tools to promote civic participation and to develop a sense of environmental awareness.
  • EDN’s Policy Team, working closely with the Education Team, identifies legislative opportunities on the federal, state, and local levels that promote and fund environmental education, green school facilities, and enable the shift to a carbon-neutral economy.
