Apr 02, 2009 11:52AM
Climate change represents the biggest challenge, and the biggest opportunity, ever encountered. Today’s youth will inherit a planet unlike any we have known. Each of us has a pivotal role and responsibility to fundamentally transform our world for the better. Whether it’s making use of renewable energy, biking to school or work or voting for Earth-friendly leaders, we can and must take action now to protect our planet.
Caring citizens are set to participate in thousands of Earth Day events in schools, communities and cities across our country and around the world. Find related events by subject, date and location at http://ww2.earthday.net/search/node.
