Earth Day (April 22, 2014) Continues to Change the Map of Personal Practice and Public Policy
April 22, 1970 marked the beginning of a conscious movement of like-minded environmentally concerned people assembling to form the very first Earth Day. Larger than any other protests of it’s time, the numbers tell the story of a generation standing together streamlining the course of humanity in favor of the environment. 20 million people participated across the nation on that day with 10,000 in New York City alone gathered for concerts, lectures and rallies. 2,000 colleges and universities favored the pro – Earth celebration over the anti-war efforts for the day. By 2012, over one billion people in 192 countries took part in Earth Day festivities. Earth Day is credited for raising an awareness that has changed the map of both personal practice and public policy. Get more information on the history of Earth Day
