Earth Day 2012 - Mobilize the Earth
As the 42nd Anniversary of Earth Day approaches, people are becoming frustrated with the failure of governments to take any steps toward protecting and preserving the environment. The Earth Day 2012 campaign is designed to provide people with the opportunity to unite their voices in a call for a sustainable future and direct them toward quantifiable outcomes, using vehicles such as petitions, the Billion Acts of Green; campaign, and events.
Earth Day 2012 will act as a launch pad for growing the environmental movement and will put forth a bold declaration demanding immediate action to secure Renewable Energy for All and a sustainable future for our planet. The movement will be comprised of individuals of every age from all corners of the Earth, and will call upon local, national, and international leaders to put an end to fossil fuel subsidies, embrace renewable energy technology, improve energy efficiency, and make energy universally accessible.
What can YOU do to Mobilize the Earth?
Throughout the month of April 2012 and on Earth Day (April 22), Earth Day Network and its wide range of partners will organize and promote events to help Mobilize the Earth. In addition to organizing Earth Day events around the world, Earth Day Network will run the following campaigns:
Individuals, organizations, businesses and governments can voice their support for the campaign by performing environmental actions and lending their names to this global referendum demanding change. Our goal is to reach one billion actions by the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in June 2012. We will present this accomplishment at Rio +20 and use it as a lever to address the UNrsquo;s inaction and inspire leaders to reach a global agreement at the Rio+20 Conference.
