On Earth Day this year (April 22nd), activists, educators, influencers and industries are called on to use education to engage citizens in the concepts of climate change – and raise awareness of the immense threat it poses to our planet and its people.
Earth Day 2017 comes exactly a year after 175 countries signed the Paris Agreement on climate change. One of the most critical and long term challenges the world has ever faced.
The theme of this year’s Earth Day on April 22nd is Environmental and Climate Literacy. The whole world is being called on to educate and learn about climate change – and raise awareness of the immense threat it poses to our planet and its people.
Mars, Incorporated is getting involved and sharing educational videos or “Teach Ins” to help spread the message.
