Be the Face of Climate Change for Earth Day 2013

All it takes is one person to make a difference in the world, and today is a better day to start than ever. Every year, April 22 marks the celebration of Earth Day. More than 1 billion people from around the world will take part in activities to raise awareness and to preserve the environment.

About Earth Day
It started just 43 years ago, but has grown into a massive movement. And in a place where we live and work, the Earth still needs our help today. Each year on April 22, people around the word take part in activities to help raise awareness about environmental issues facing our planet.

One of the main messages of Earth Day is that education and awareness can make the world a better place. Then, more people can act. So whether you tell a friend, neighbor or an entire city, start spreading the word. The more people who know, the more people can help.

Start Locally, Grow Bigger
The Earth we populate is a massive place. Billions of people inhabit every corner, from huge metropolitan cities to tiny remote villages. Trying to keep the entire place beautiful and clean is seemingly a daunting task. That’s why it’s best to start with what you know—your community.

Hold a neighborhood cleanup day to get your neighbors and friends to act on making a difference. Pick up trash, brighten waste areas or canvas a park to make improvements. Or, consider a major initiative for your community. If your community doesn’t have a recycling system in place, be proactive about making one happen.

Be the Face of Climate Change
Climate change affects different regions of the world in many different ways. Consider the ways it has affected you or your community. Maybe an extreme drought caused crops to suffer or sea levels rose to meet your home. Climate change doesn’t only affect the environment, it also affects the people and animals that inhabit the land.

For this year’s Earth Day, join the campaign to be the face of climate change. Submit a photo showing how you or your community has been affected by climate change. Then, submit a photo showing how you’re going to do something about it. Visit www.EarthDay.org to submit your photos and also to get ideas to help you put a plan into action for your community.
