What an incredible time for humans and life on Earth right now. There is so much that is simultaneously wonderful and challenging that it can be overwhelming to know how to process all of it. If you are looking for some places to get plugged in and involved, here are a few for your consideration:
Of course, the main thing to share in the official Earth Day Live. From the site: “From April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, to April 24, activists, performers, thought leaders, and artists will come together for an empowering, inspiring, and communal three day livestream mobilization.” The site and registration are here:
Through the week, Executive Director of Project Drawdown Jonathan Foley and other members will be giving a series of talks and keynotes on proven solutions to reverse global warming. You can find that link to these events here:
Dr. Foley’s Earth Day Webinar was a fantastic overview of the science of the problem and proven solutions to reverse the climate emergency we find ourselves in. You can find a previously recorded version of that talk here:
This talk is a great complement to his Earth Day blog entry on Medium: A Personalized Action Guide for the Environment
For the final resource to check out, The Pachamama Alliance will be hosting a virtual “Voices for the Earth Summit” from 8:30am to 6pm on April 22nd. There will be an incredible list of speakers from indigenous leaders to leading activists including Paul Hawken, Van Jones, Annie Leonard, Lynne Twist, Charles Eisenstein and many others. You can find out more info and register for that event here:
We hope you all find this week a great week to reconnect with whatever your passion is to help with the planet. Please look for future events we will be hosting (virtually of course) to keep the conversation going about continuing to find ways we can all participate in be a part of the solution to reversing the climate crisis.
