What is International World Earth Day

International World Earth Day has been an annual worldwide event since 1970, the birth of the modern environmental movement. Events take place to raise awareness, support, and protect the environment. Today events take place in more than 193 countries! This year the Youth Hostel Association (YHA) has pulled out all the stops and organised events so you can Get Your Green On.

There are events taking place throughout the UK, so why not join in with one of the YHA-organised events? These include beach clean-ups to clothes swaps. Then in the evenings celebrate the day's achievements with food, drink, and music. Inspire, cultivate, and Get Your Green On.

What you can Do

Not able to attend any events on the day? Speak to your local library/community centre to see what events are taking place in your area or perhaps you would like to organise your own event/day out with friends and family. Urban clean-ups are good fun and a great way to Get Your Green On.
