Earth Month® 2017
Earth Month Network™
April 2016 was our 46th Anniversary! People from all over the globe have shared their input for this year’s topic. Many from all age groups have one common thread to share: with all the advancements over the years many are still living in the dark as to our total environment; lacking simple awareness of issues and a direction to take. This is in part due to the increase in population density, industrialization, climate change, and apathy.
As such, this year’s theme is "Earth Month University". No...it is not a real university but one can get excited over its purpose. So once again we are in need of educating people young and old from all cultures. As the approach to an Earth Month University is set in motion, the base of this process is developing Education on the Environment for grades K-12 and beyond. It is vital that colleges and universities become involved at their campus and with community engagement.
One of our major goals as a not-for-profit IRS 501(c)(3) PC organization of Earth Month Network, Inc. is to help mobilize grass roots programs: in part to eradicate "Environmental Apathy" by providing needed: Awareness, Knowledge, Education, Stewardship and Activism towards global environmental issues. We are the "original Earth Month" "Earth Month®brand and after 46 years now, there is still much work to be completed. Earth Month® is Every Month!
The theme for last year was premised around Our Planet In Peril and building upon Returning to Nature. In doing so we explored Sustainability roots and where it is going.... by "The "10-R's of Sustainability" within the natural, physical, cultural, social and economic realm. Were you able to utilize them and expand them into best business practices?
What are you doing for Earth Month 2017 and the full year to come? Our work is vital, and we need your financial support to continue the good work...please help us make a difference!
