Hundreds of Thousands Join together to Raise Awareness on Climate Change

Earth Day started in 1970 with a humble beginning in the United States. Over the past 48 years, people have joined together to help sustain and protect the environment.

In 2017, Earth Day took on a new meaning with international protests pushing for a more sustainable future.

The Guardian reported:

‘The main March for Science event was held in Washington DC, where organizers made plans for up to 150,000 people to flock to the national mall…’

They also pointed out that over 600 protests were held across the globe.

The March for Science event continues after the protest wrapped yesterday. They have extended their educative platform to show that climate change cannot be solved in one day.

Earth Day is also extending their educative initiative throughout next week. Browse over some of the upcoming events.

In addition to the protests, Earth Day also pushes individuals to take an active role in the environment. Browse over Google data showing the section of the country where water conservation is in more demand to planting trees on Earth Day.
