Organize an Earth Day Event

Earth Day events are limited only by your imagination. There are plenty of things you or your organisation can do here in Bermuda to have fun and foster positive change in our community. Develop your own Earth Day event or use one of the ideas listed below! Most importantly, make sure you do something that is engaging and that you enjoy; we want people to get excited about protecting the environment!

  • Organize an Earth Day hike, bike, walk, run, swim or bike outing.
  • Arrange a beach or neighborhood cleanup.
  • Call a school or community center and offer to build and plant a vegtable garden for them and help maintain it during the year.
  • Organize a screening of an environmentally themed documentary such as The Story of Stuff, Food Inc., Bag It or Who Killed the Electric Car.
  •  Invite a 'green' speaker or local environmentalist to educate your group about the threats to environmental sustainability and the ways to combat them.
  •  Fund-raise for a 'green' charity

A_Billion_Acts_of_Green

The Earth Day Network hopes to present A Billion Acts of Green® before the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012. The concept is simple -- Get individuals and organisations to pledge acts that help reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability. An act can be a simple gesture, such as washing laundry in cold water, or immense, like picking up a million pounds of trash. Individuals and organisations can pledge 'acts of green' at any time, and as often as they want.

Earth Day is a great time to crowd-source acts of green within our community. Collectively, these acts will not only have an impact on global carbon emissions, but will also demonstrate the power of small every-day individual acts of green.
