The enormous challenges — but also the vast opportunities — of acting on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.
Earth Day 2020 will be far more than a day. It must be a historic moment when citizens of the world rise up in a united call for the creativity, innovation, ambition, and bravery that we need to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future.
Earth Day is very important to all of us here at RMB, and we try to recognize the significance and urgency of Climate Change and our planet every day.
We have a wide range of authors who specialize in different areas of conservation; environmental, water security, Indigenous Rights, wildlife protection, renewable resources and more! We have put together a wonderful list for you to read this Earth Day – or any day!
