Earth Day 2014. Earth Day this year is on the 22nd of April and education is at the heart of the event.
“The fight against climate change is at an impasse and life on Earth hangs in the balance. Help us save polar bears and other wildlife as their habitats disappear and their food sources become scarce. Like the polar bear, human life is under threat, too. Storms are becoming stronger, droughts are becoming more severe, and rising sea levels encroach on our cities. We need an active informed public to stand tall, stop and reverse climate change and protect our children’s future! That’s why Earth Day Network is leading the charge to educate and register 300,000 new climate voters in 2014—voters who will support renewable energy and hold their leaders accountable, voters who will help us transition to a more sustainable future.” (Earth Day 2014 Website)
