Earth Day Canada 2017
Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day Canada is a national charity that inspires and supports people across the country to connect with nature and build resilient communities. We lead an annual Earth Day campaign in conjunction with free, year-round, award-winning programs that get people of all ages outside, interacting with the natural environment — this, in turn, fosters an intrinsically motivated, enduring commitment to stewardship and conservation.
EDC works closely with school-aged children and youth through our renowned EcoKids program and new EarthPLAY initiative, and recognizes via our Hometown Heroes Awards those who are leading the way in making our planet healthier. We engage diverse communities in the environmental NGO sector with our Tapestry program and help our corporate partners achieve their sustainability goals with our growing employee engagement platform.
This year’s campaign is dedicated to outdoor play. Check the site for ideas and for events.
