Earth Day 2020
The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970 enlisted 20 million Americans and is credited with launching the modern environmental movement. It led to passage of landmark environmental laws including the Clean Air, Clear Water and Endangered Species Acts. Many countries soon adopted similar laws. Earth Day is now recognised as the planet's largest civic event. The UN chose Earth Day 2016 to sign the Paris climate agreement.
As the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day approaches, the time is long overdue for a global outpouring of energy, enthusiasm and commitment to create a new environmental paradigm. Earth Day Real Time Run 2020 is part of this unparalleled global collaboration that fights the growing global climate crisis.
