Commit and Make a Difference

Many countries and people around the world celebrate Earth Day. It is a way to honor the planet we live on and bring awareness to our impact. It’s also an important time to think about what we can do to make it better for future generations. Take a moment to think about what you can do to live in better harmony with the planet.

Youth around the world, like Greta Thunberg and Xihutezcatl Martinez, are stepping up to take on this important responsibility. Locally, groups like Zero Hour Phoenix and AZ Youth Climate Coalition are taking a stand on climate change. You too can make a difference. Help celebrate Earth Day and take on a personal challenge to make a difference.
