April 1 - April 30, 2020

Welcome to Earth Day Ecochallenge

On the first Earth Day in 1970, 20 million people in the United States took a stand to demand a better way forward for our planet. Here we are fifty years later, and Earth Day is now recognized as the planet’s most significant annual civic engagement event. Our recognition of Earth Day now takes up the entire month of April in many places around the world. Earth Day Ecochallenge helps you put your Earth Day intentions into action by providing you with the information, motivation, tools, and community to make a difference for our planet Earth.

Our Actions Speak. For Earth.

Earth Day Ecochallenge is a 30-day environmental and social engagement program. From April 1 - April 30, you select actions to take that align with your individual values and make a 30-day commitment to complete those actions, all the while practicing and reinforcing good habits. For every completed action, you earn points and create impact. Your points contribute to your team's total points, and your impact contributes to our collective impact.

Choose actions that are practiced one-time or daily, and choose them from categories such as Wildlife, Freshwater, Oceans, People, Food, Climate, and Forests. Whatever actions you select, know that you are building habits that ensure a better shared future for us all.

Like all of our global Ecochallenges throughout each year, Earth Day Ecochallenge is free to join and everyone is welcome! Simply sign up and join an existing team, create a new team, or join the global Community team. Our actions speak, so let yours speak for Earth this April.
