CANE Supports the UN International Mother Earth Day and Canadian Earth Day – The Earth Day 2020 Campaign is “We can all change our habits for a brighter future”.
Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.
Changing our habits and reducing climate change is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and species protection laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and tredding softly on the earth.
On Earth day, April 22, 2021, we will face two crises: One is immediate from a pandemic and the other is slowly building as a disaster for our climate.
We can, will, and must solve both challenges. The world was not prepared for a coronavirus. Leaders ignored hard science and delayed critical actions. We still have time to prepare — in every part of the world — for the climate crisis.
EARTHRISE is how we set a new global standard on Earth Day 2020. We must act together to say that global disaster must never happen again; we must not make the same mistakes twice.
