On April 22-24, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, millions of people around the world are going online for a three-day mobilization to stop the climate emergency.

Join Atlanta for the Planet for our first ever webinar in partnership with Georgia Conservation Voters and Sierra Club Georgia! We will be focusing on the importance of being civically engaged as youth concerned about the state of our environment. Even if you cannot yet vote, there are so many ways to utilize the Georgia governmental system to fight for the planet!

This event is part of a global series of actions to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day from this April 22-24 while raising awareness about our current climate emergency. This three-day mobilization continues the momentum of the youth climate movement. By addressing the need for everyone to work towards a safe and sustainable future, we can transform the world into a place that will flourish for generations to come.

This webinar will start with an overview of the situation of the climate in Georgia from our Atlanta for the Planet team. This will be followed by an overview of relevant ways for youth to be civically engaged delivered by Georgia Conservation Voters. Finally, Sierra Club Georgia will demonstrate a way to use your newfound knowledge to get involved!
