Emeryville Earth Day 2020: Connecting Climate and Health

EarthriseEarth Day began in 1970, as a response to increasing public consciousness about the state of the planet. Images the Apollo astronauts shared, of a fragile, interconnected blue sphere in space changed the way we viewed our planet and environment. 

Fifty years later, the efforts to protect and restore earth’s ecosystems are ongoing, and with thanks to individual and group action, are increasingly effective. Each one of us is a necessary part of this change. 

This year, the focus of Earth Day has shifted from community events and volunteerism to online action and engagement. We invite you to play Emeryville Earth Day Bingo (prizes available) and visit the Emeryville Virtual Recreation Center for virtual events and resources that celebrate and support our families, our communities, and our environment.
