This year Earth Day will be massive. So huge, in fact, that it starts two days early to fit in all the incredible virtual events people have organised.
Earth Day Global Youth Climate Summit
It begins on April 20th with a virtual Global Youth Climate Summit which will bring together hundreds of young climate activist voices. A collaboration between three inspirational international organisations: Earth Uprising, My Future My Voice and OneMillionOfUs. You will hear from youth climate activists including: legendary Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Greta Thunberg; founder of Earth Uprising, Alexandria Villaseñor; and World Children Peace Prize 2019 recipient, Licypriya Kangujam who has been campaigning for climate action since she was just seven years old.
