Earthrise – an Earth Day celebration to rise up for the Earth

 

 

“For it is our hope that implores us, at our uncompromising core,

To keep rising up for an earth more than worth fighting for.”

Amanda Gorman, “Earthrise”

 

Join us on April 22 for a special Earth Day celebration of our connection to the earth and a reignition of hope and action!

Listen, share and create during this dynamic virtual session where we will come together to celebrate our connection to Earth and each other.  Inspirational voices will speak on topics ranging from decolonization, ecosystem restoration, ocean health, food leadership, and more.

This year’s Earth Day theme also dovetails with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, which calls on all of us to protect and revive ecosystems around the world. Healthy ecosystems are critical in our efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change, stay healthy, enhance livelihoods, and protect biodiversity. Harnessing and living into our connection with the earth is more important than ever. It can bring us hope and that’s one of the most important ingredients for sustained action.

Mark your calendars!
