Earth Day is April 22

February 5th, 2011 by Events

Earth Day, which is held on 22 April, inspires and mobilises organisations and individuals to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.

In recognition of the power of millions of individual actions, Earth Day 2011 will be organized around A Billion Acts of Green®: personal, organizational and corporate pledges to live and act sustainably.

The Billion Acts of Green® campaign , which is the largest environmental service campaign in the world, is receiving commitments by individuals, corporations, and governments to further the goal of measurably reducing carbon emissions and supporting sustainability.

The goal is to register one billion actions in advance of the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 2012.

The Billion Acts of Green® website quantifies acts of green through an easy-to-use online registration tool. A Billion Acts of Green® demonstrates the kind of environmental impact that can be made when millions of people, corporations and organizations make commitments, both small and large, to better their environment.

The Earth Day Network coordinates Earth Day globally.
