EARTH DAY BIG EVENT
Earth day is coming in April !! I received the following email and I think it’s a great opportunity for us to get involved and do some event either together or separately, but do something!
As an initial idea, I thought we could open up our workshops’ doors so that people can come and visit (maybe offer some snacks?) and get educated about our work. If you create an event and register on the earth day website you’ll probably get some visitors, who knows!
What do you guys think? Any other ideas to create a lot of noise??
This is the email:
Earth Day Network is committed to catalyzing the movement to put an end to one of the greatest threats to the survival of our planet and every living being on it. On Earth Day, April 22, 2018, with your help, we will mobilize across oceans and continents to End Plastic Pollution.

Ready to take the lead in educating and activating others to End Plastic Pollution?
Here are some ideas to help you get rolling!
Organize an Event on Earth Day: Our Earth Day Action Toolkit and the Plastic Pollution Primer and Action Toolkit give you both the content and process to organize an effective and powerful activity or event.
Host a Teach-In: Involve your family, friends or co-workers; organize your local community; or develop an initiative in your organization to learn and agree on actions to reduce and eventually End Plastic Pollution. Find a Toolkit to help you organize here. Use it in combination with the Plastic Pollution Primer and Action Toolkit.
Take Part in Climate Education Week: Climate Education Week will start April 16th and the Climate Education Week Toolkit will provide a week of activities for K-12 students to learn about and act to prevent local plastic pollution. A toolkit will soon be available on our website on this page.
Mobilize your Campus: For teachers and students at higher education institutions, check out the MobilizeU Toolkit that takes you step by step to organize a teach-in on your campus to address plastic pollution.
Register your Event and Activity: Earth Day Network will give visibility to your event or activity. By collating information of events around the world we give global significance and amplify the effort that millions of people and thousands of organizations will be doing to protect the environment on Earth Day. If you are an individual, you can register your event/activity here and if you are an institution here.
Spread the word and help grow the community: Please share with your network using #EarthDay2018 #EndPlasticPollution and @EarthDayNetwork to connect with other Earth Day events across the world. We want to hear what you are doing for Earth Day! Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Tag us @EarthDayNetwork, and you might get a shout-out!
