Earth Day is THIS WEEK – April 22nd 2020!

This year’s Earth Day theme is “CLIMATE ACTION”. As many of us are currently staying safe an healthy at home, it is a great time to talk with your family and/or to take the time to think about what Climate Action means to you!

Copy, Paste, Save or Print out these drawings, save them on your smart device, color them in, and have FUN! Be creative with your family and while you draw discuss what you can all do together to support Climate Action!

POST photos and videos of your efforts on Facebook to share with your community! Be sure to tag and use hashtags #partofthesolution and #earthday in your posts! We will be re-posting photos and videos all week to help spread the importance of Earth Day and Climate Action!

From the UN Sustainable Developments:

“Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. It is disrupting national economies and affecting lives, costing people, communities and countries dearly today and even more tomorrow. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, weather events are becoming more extreme and greenhouse gas emissions are now at their highest levels in history. Without action, the world’s average surface temperature is likely to surpass 3 degrees centigrade this century. The poorest and most vulnerable people are being affected the most.”

“Affordable, scalable solutions are now available to enable countries to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts. Climate change, however, is a global challenge that does not respect national borders. It is an issue that requires solutions that need to be coordinated at the international level to help developing countries move toward a low-carbon economy.”
