New York City’s Earth Day celebrations are among the largest in the world. Earth911 talks with John Oppermann, executive director of Earth Day Initiative, which produces the annual events. The 50th anniversary of Earth Day physical events have been canceled, but Oppermann’s team has set up a virtual event, including speeches, interactive presentations, and booths that you can stroll from home. Learn about climate change and the steps you can take to reduce your impact, then find organizations to support and join.
We talked before the coronavirus pandemic resulted in lockdowns across the country. Oppermann discussed the many options we have to be better stewards of the Earth. Spend this 20 minutes to prepare for your virtual participation in Earth Day 50, it will help make an even bigger difference than the physical event.
