Billion Acts of Green

Brought to you by Earth Day Network, the core of Earth Day's 40th Anniversary program is the Billion Acts of Green campaign. This effort is focused on the facilitation and cultivation of service on behalf of the planet. The goal of the campaign is to aggregate the millions of environmental service commitments that individuals and organizations around the world make each year - thereby sending a powerful message that people from all walks of life are committed to solving climate change.

The Billion Acts of Green web site serves as the repository for these commitments. Through the web site, individuals and organizations can have make their own commitments to the environment. These commitments will be displayed alongside those of others. They also will be automatically counted toward Earth Day Network's ultimate goal of a billion acts.
In addition to the web site, Earth Day Network is coordinating large and small-scale environmental projects around the world. These range from tree plantings to large-scale light bulb switch-out campaigns, home energy efficiency retrofits, school greenings and water projects. All are geared to bringing people together to lower the world's carbon footprint. They are run in conjunction with community organizations, national, regional and local governments worldwide, actions include broad-based participation by diverse cultures and ethnicities, faith-based organizations, seniors and a worldwide college campus campaign.
Global service activities have already begun, but a major series of service projects will be held the weekend before Earth Day - April 17-18, 2010. Please check the Earth Day Network's main web site regularly in the months ahead for updates on service opportunities.
