What is Earth Day?

This incredible planet keeps us alive, so we need to take care of it. But, over-consumption means it's in a crisis. As we continue to pollute nature, the climate gets hotter. For healthy people and a healthy planet, we need transformational change.

Earth Day is a global environmental movement that started in 1970, marked annually on 22 April. It calls for the protection of the planet through activism and education. Every year one billion people take part, across almost 200 countries, to create positive change.

Why is Earth Day important?

At the Eden Project, our mission is to demonstrate and inspire positive action for the planet, which is why we know Earth Day is so important. 

We celebrate our connection to nature, working with it to change the direction we're heading in, together. It's not too late to create a sustainable future with a stable climate, where everyone has equal access to fresh air, clean water and enough food.
