🌏 Welcome to the Earth Month Ecochallenge 2024!

Since the first Earth Day in 1970, when 20 million people in the United States rallied for a better future for our planet, Earth Day has evolved into the planet’s most significant annual civic engagement event. Expanding beyond a single day, Earth Day now encompasses the entire month of April globally. The Earth Month Ecochallenge is your opportunity to transform Earth Day intentions into impactful actions and lasting habits.

Take Action for Every Ecosystem, Every Creature: Your Choices Shape Our World.

Earth Month Ecochallenge, running from April 1st to April 30th, is a 30-day program focused on environmental and social engagement. During this month, you're invited to select actions that resonate with your values, committing to them for 30 days to foster and reinforce positive habits. Each action you complete earns points and generates real-world impact. Your efforts, combined with those of your team, contribute to a significant collective difference.

This year's theme, “Conserving Every Ecosystem, Caring for Every Creature,” highlights the intersection of conservation and behavior change. By focusing on daily actions and continuous learning, we aim to create a sustainable and just world, not just for humans but for all species and ecosystems we rely on.

Choose your actions from categories such as Fresh Water & Oceans, Land & Forests, Climate & Air, Wildlife & Biodiversity, and Community. Whether they are one-time or daily activities, your choices build habits that pave the way for a better shared future.

As with all our global Ecochallenges, the Earth Month Ecochallenge is free and open to everyone. Join by teaming up with others or connecting with the global Community team. Let your actions this April speak volumes for our planet and its myriad of life forms.

In this Earth Month, let’s demonstrate how our choices and learnings can bring us together to tangibly conserve ecosystems and care for all creatures, securing a sustainable world for generations to come.!
