Earth Day 50/50 – Looking Back, Moving Forward



Earth Day 50/50: Looking Back, Moving Forward
April 22, 2020 10am-11:30am EDT (1400-1530 UTC)

To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day, please join the Earth Institute, Columbia University, and viewers from around the globe for an interactive live webcast.

At this truly amazing juncture in human history, we face an immediate global public health emergency as well as a slower, but monumental, global climate crisis. Our special Earth Institute Live conversation with Columbia University experts, alumni and students will reflect on what environmental science and activism accomplished since the first Earth day. Then we will examine today’s challenges and opportunities and chart pathways to a more sustainable, equitable, resilient future for humanity through the next 50 years and beyond.

Viewers from around the world and on platforms from Facebook to Twitter can weigh in and watch this intergenerational chat including:
