News from the Earth Network, organizers of this year’s virtual 50th anniversary digital celebration of our planet – Earth Day Live
Posted April 26th, 2020 on Niagara At Large
The 50th anniversary was an Earth Day like no other.
Though we couldn’t physically take to the streets, millions of people still took action for the first digital Earth Day. From adopting plant-based diets to participating in citizen science to pledging to vote, millions spoke up for the planet with 24 hours of action.
We also, spent the day as the #1 trending hashtag on Twitter. The global digital surge on all our social media platforms was a resounding success, and we couldn’t have done that without the power of your grassroots voices.
The Earth Day Live livestream drew millions of viewers from around the world. Over the 12-hour event, we heard from so many diverse voices and perspectives.

We can’t cover them all here, but standouts included Reverend Yearwood of Hip Hop Caucus, Bill Nye, Sylvia Earle, Al Gore, Elizabeth Warren, Ziggy Marley and Ricky Kej. Speakers touched topics like voting, science, climate justice, policy, conservation and education. These voices, among so many others, helped educate and entertain us throughout Earth Day.
The 50th anniversary, despite its circumstances, was a success. But our fight is far from over.
Earth Day is more than a day — it’s a global movement, where we work year-round to bring you opportunities to be part of the solution: participate in a cleanup, attend a teach-in, plant a tree and, every election, vote for the Earth.

2020 is Earth Year.
