50th Anniversary of Earth Day

April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Established in 1970, the first Earth Day mobilized 20 million Americans and is credited with launching the modern environmental movement. It is now recognized as the planet’s largest civic event and has led to many landmark environmental laws. In 2016, the United Nations chose Earth Day as the day to sign the Paris climate agreement. Join Lions around the world and choose a service project that focuses on our environment this April.
