Earth Day Network
On the first Earth Day in 1970, 20 million people unified their voices for the environment. Today, the Earth Day movement continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion, and motivate people to action. For Earth Day 2017, we invite you to join us as we launch a campaign for global environmental and climate literacy. Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.
Global Footprint Network
Every year people demand more from nature than nature can regenerate. We see the effects of this in the loss of wildlife habitat, collapsing fisheries, and climate change – all things that impact our economies and quality of life. To create a sustainable future, Global Footprint Network is changing how the world manages its natural resources. Our metrics track how resources are used and measure what’s available. We empower leaders in government and finance to make confident policy and investment decisions backed by facts. Together, we are creating a future where people, planet, and economies thrive.
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) works to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. We combine the power of more than two million members and online activists with the expertise of some 500 scientists, lawyers, and policy advocates across the globe to ensure the rights of all people to the air, the water, and the wild. We work to prevent special interests from undermining public interests, and believe the world’s children should inherit a planet that will sustain them as it has sustained us.
World Wildlife Fund
For more than 50 years, World Wildlife Fund has been protecting the future of nature. The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.1 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.
Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. We run science-based campaigns and seek to win policy victories that can restore ocean biodiversity and ensure that the oceans are abundant and can feed hundreds of millions of people. Oceana victories have already helped to create policies that could increase fish populations in its countries by as much as 40 percent and that have protected more than 1 million square miles of ocean.
