Let’s make a difference!
Since 1990, we’ve been celebrating Earth Day with millions of schools, community organizations and individual Canadians across the country. But that’s not all we do – not even close. We believe everyone has a part to play in building a sustainable future for our country, on Earth Day and every day. How do we help make that future a reality? We work with people from every sector of society to offer year-round programs that engage kids, teachers, youth, families, communities, government and business leaders in taking action for a healthier planet. We create lesson plans, we give out scholarships, we fund community groups, we recognize heroic environmental leaders, we partner with green-minded employers … and we’re just getting started.
But we can’t do it alone. As a non-governmental organization, we rely on your support to keep our programs running. Joining us at the gala is one way you’ve shown your support, and – April 22 aside – it’s our favourite day of the year. We love standing in a room full of environmental superstars and their supporters, and we know you will too. Let’s create a greener planet together – and have a great time doing it.
