The event will begin at noon ET on Earth Day 2021. According their statement, the EARTHDAY.ORG event will consist of “workshops, panel discussions, roundtables, films, and special performances” that will focus on “climate and environmental literacy, reforestation efforts, regenerative agriculture, equity and environmental justice, citizen science, cleanups, and beyond.”
“EARTHDAY.ORG looks forward to contributing to the success of this historic climate summit and making active progress to Restore Our Earth,” said Kathleen Rogers, President of EARTHDAY.ORG. ”We must see every country rapidly raise their ambition across all climate issues — and that must include climate education which would lead to a green jobs-ready workforce, a green consumer movement, and an educated and civically engaged citizenry around the world.”
“Earth Day’s 2021 theme, Restore Our Earth, focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems, as well as create a green jobs-ready workforce, a green consumer movement, and an educated and civically engaged citizenry around the world,” concluded the post.
