Students Leading the Charge for Earth Day 2023
So, November 28th marked the third Call to Earth Day, and it was all about getting folks to join forces for our planet. We teamed up with people, schools, and groups worldwide to shine a spotlight on taking care of the environment. This year’s theme, “Our Shared Home,” aimed to bring humans closer to nature.
Students Taking the Lead
More than 200,000 folks, including 235 schools, jumped in this time. Students got their hands dirty, figuratively and literally, to do their part in saving the planet. They did all sorts of cool stuff, from creating awareness videos to organizing sales to tackle junk.
