Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day Online
Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the annual event supporting environmental protection. On this day, people around the world would be attending various talks, festivals or celebrations around the world, but instead we need to look at ways to support the day at home. Earth Day has now gone digital with many organisations moving their traditional events online.
On #EarthDay50, we can still come together and share creative ways to make a difference in the world whilst remaining safe at home.
Earth Day Live
Earth Day Live is hosting and organising an ongoing 3 day live stream across their website and social media. There will be celebrity cameos and high-profile speakers over the 72 hours, including Al Gore, Joaquin Phoenix, Ai Weiwei and more.
NASA has been celebrating #EarthDayAtHome all month and will have new content across its site and social media channels for the special day. Watch out for a very special Instagram Takeover with Astronaut Jessica Meir
World Wildlife Fund and UNICEF
The World Wildlife Fund and UNICEF are hosting a virtual concert with over 40 artists from six countries, all participating from home. The World Wildlife Fund are also inviting people to create art pieces that show the importance of nature by sharing #ArtforEarth on their social channels.
Born Wild: The Next Generation
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, National Geographic presents BORN WILD: THE NEXT GENERATION hosted by “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts. The one-hour television event is a celebration of the planet focusing on the next generation of baby animals, their habitats and the environmental changes they will have to face.
