Participate in the EarthDay EcoChallenge 

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day with a global community of changemakers by committing to concrete actions that improve our global health and sustainability. 

The Earthday Ecochallenge connects you to other advocates and changemakers, each doing what we can, in ways that are most relevant to us, to make this great spinning dot we call home a healthier, more equitable, more sustainable place.

Here's how to participate:
