Join us in raising awareness and contributing to the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in April 2020. This is a Global Celebration of our interconnectedness and interdependency with all living things aimed at raising awareness of the threatened and disappearing ecosystems which support life as we know it.
It is a worldwide gathering of many millions of people around the world addressing important issues at every local, national and global level. We need to focus on solving the challenges we are faced with while remembering to reconnect to the vibrancy of our living home planet today – sharing Earth is our common ground.
Global View Foundation in the year 2000 was called the Spaceship Earth Foundation, and Earth Day was celebrating its 30th Anniversary that April. One of our main programs since we started a few years prior was to establish an annual Earth Day event in our home community of Colorado Springs. This was the year the City’s Annual Celebration begun with a formal Mayoral Proclamation and solar-powered concert and booth event in our downtown Park.
We look forward to seeing what Colorado Springs has planned for the 2020 Earth Day Celebration. Check back here for updates.
What is Earth Challenge 2020? April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. In recognition of this milestone Earth Day Network, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the U.S. Department of State’s Eco-Capitals Forum are launching Earth Challenge 2020 as the world’s largest coordinated citizen science campaign.
Earth Challenge 2020 will engage millions of global citizens to aggregate and collect more than one billion data points in areas including air quality, water quality, biodiversity, pollution, and human health. Through Earth Challenge 2020, citizen science volunteers will learn about their local conditions, and leverage information to inspire collaborative action and influence policy decisions.
