Re-posting: Earth Day Network - Mobilze the Earth

Please join us in our most ambitious Earth Day campaign since the first Earth Day changed the world: Mobilize the Earth!

With your help, we will activate the more than 1 billion people in 192 countries who participate in Earth Day every year, and solidify the powerful momentum growing around the world to solve our world’s toughest environmental problems.

Join our Mobilize the Earth campaign and help us:

Secure 10 million signatures for our Global Energy Petition
The petition demands the adoption of renewable energy and energy efficiency targets, universal renewable energy access, and an end to all fossil fuel subsidies. We plan to deliver the petition to world leaders at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (RIO+20) in June, 2012. 

Achieve A Billion Acts of Green®
With close to 500 MILLION commitments to date, join EDN and our partners to reach ONE BILLION ACTIONS in time for Earth Day 2012. We will take all those acts of environmental service and sacrifice that people, organizations, and corporations have performed on behalf of the planet, and present this accomplishment as a “referendum” to world leaders.

Engage youth in the call for a sustainable future
Student leaders from colleges and high schools from around the world are joining us to take direct action on behalf of the planet. Through marches, voter registration and organized events on campuses and in their communities, the voices of those who have the most to lose will be heard.

Put Faith in Action
Working with tens of thousands of faith based organizations, EDN is organizing faith leaders to take action in their places of worship and in their communities.

Organize thousands of rallies and actions around the globe
Earth Day, April 22, 2012, will become a powerful focus for thousands of rallies in communities all across the world! Together, we will support the decisive action needed NOW to stop climate change from overtaking our future. At the same time, at the city and state level, hundreds of public forums will engage leaders to bring livability and clean energy investment to their communities.

We hope you will take a few minutes to learn more about our campaigns, and get involved!

Our team will be at COP 17 in Durban South Africa. Please visit our booth and sign up to be part of the largest Earth Day ever.

Don’t forget to mark April 22 on your calendar! Together we can Mobilize the Earth and take charge of our future.

Stay Tuned. For more information about Earth Day Network CLICK HERE
