With the pandemic raging on, this year’s Earth Day will look a little different to previous years.
Social distancing measures around the world mean that many people will have to mark the international day of environmental action from their homes.
This year’s Earth Day theme is “Restore Our Earth”, with participants urged to focus not only on how we can reduce our impact on the planet but also on how we might actively repair ecosystems.
There’s no better time to brush up on your knowledge of the climate and environment crisis than Earth Day.
Nasa’s climate change website is full of resources including fact sheets, videos, quizes and social media resources to learn more about the crisis.
Hundreds of documentaries on nature and the climate crisis can be watched for free on WaterBear, the first streaming platform dedicated to the future of our planet. And if you missed Al Gore’s 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth”, the sequel was made a few years back.
Podcasts are another useful way to get up to date with climate news. For a feminist take, former Irish President Mary Robinson and comedian Maeve Higgins share women’s roles in climate justice on Mothers of Invention.
