About Earth Day Everyday
Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world. More than six million Canadians including nearly every school-aged child participate in an Earth Day activity in their communities. We partner with and support hundreds of organizations across the country, as they engage Canadians in annual celebrations of this special day.
Founded in 1990, Earth Day Canada is a national environmental charity. We offer free, year-round, award-winning programs to educate and inspire Canadians of all ages, backgrounds and sectors to reach local environmental solutions. Our mission is to foster and celebrate environmental respect, action and behaviour change that lessens our impact on the earth.
Our programs focused on education, action, recognition and financial support are successful because they offer simple, easy-to-accomplish actions that can be done by all of us. Each individual action will add up to a substantial improvement for the environment when we all work together.
Earth Day Every Day
April 22, 2015 marks the launch of Earth Day Every Day, a national framework helping Canadians to reduce their carbon footprint 20% by 2020 via an online, mobile-friendly platform. Commit to green acts, share your profile and achievements, and be recognized for making good green choices!
The EcoKids Program provides thousands of schools and teachers with free, curriculum-based environmental education resources that are designed to inspire children to become life-long environmental stewards. EcoKids supports learning through topical resources, innovative campaigns and educational games and activities. It encourages children to form their own opinions, make decisions, get involved and understand the impact their actions have on the environment.
The Hometown Heroes Award Program has become one of Canada’s most prestigious environmental awards. Established in 2004, the program recognizes and celebrates environmental leaders, groups and small businesses who foster meaningful long-term community awareness and action. To date, Earth Day Canada and its partners have recognized 115 Hometown Heroes across Canada.
Earth Day Canada’s diversity and inclusion program has two primary goals: to move the environmental agenda forward within diverse communities and to advance inclusivity in the environmental sector. Tapestry consists of inter-linked elements which include supporting the diversification of environmental sector boards, diverse community leadership development, and organizational capacity building and communications.
The Beyond Green Program focuses on solutions-based, cross-sector environmental initiatives for young adults (18-30) by building and providing a network of information, relationships, and tools for change. The program is focused on connecting people in Canada with opportunities for direct environmental engagement. The ultimate goal is to build new knowledge, skills, optimism and life-long commitment to environmental issues among young Canadians.
