Are you participating in the climate movement's Earth Day Live?
Climate activists may not be able to gather in large numbers during Earth Week, but they can still spread the word about climate justice worldwide. For three days, climate groups will host live streams with experts, celebrities, politicians and more, all focusing on how to combat the climate crisis. According to EarthDayLive2020.org, each day will have a different theme:
April 22, Earth Day: "This first day will focus on amplifying the voice of indigenous leaders and youth climate activists who are leading the movement to halt the climate crisis."
April 23: "Led by Stop the Money Pipeline Coalition, during this day of action we are calling for a global reset. We want to reprogram the economy so that it works for people and the planet, not polluters and politicians."
April 24: "We need leaders who will address this existential threat. It’s critical for all of us to show up at the polls this year and vote for our future. So the final day will focus on the importance of voting through a nationwide youth voter registration day."
Joining the livestream is as easy as visiting the event's website (where you can also RSVP to the virtual event), and coverage will also continue on all social media platforms.
And for those with internet, the desire to join the climate event may not be as strong as it would have been were it in-person. The country is coping with stress, anxiety and worry in different ways. For some, that means a lack of motivation.
