Earth Day Display 2024 (April 22)

Earth Day, held annually on April 22nd, is a global event dedicated to supporting environmental protection. Originating in 1970 with 20 million Americans rallying for environmental sustainability, it led to the establishment of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and key environmental legislation. By 1990, Earth Day had become a global movement, mobilizing 200 million people across 141 countries. Today, Earth Day is coordinated globally by and engages over 1 billion individuals from more than 193 countries in various environmental initiatives.

Check out some fun Earth Day quizzes to see how much you know (or need to learn about!) topics such as clean energy, sustainable fashion, plastics impact, or even bees and fish!

David Lam Library has also selected books for our new upcoming Earth Day display within the library.
