How are you Taking Back Earth Day?

This Earth Day, on campuses across the country students are demanding their campuses take bold action on climate by divesting from fossil fuels and moving to clean energy.

Students and universities are leading the fight against climate change. Thanks to years of student organizing, over 700 campuses have committed to carbon neutrality or have made some kind of commitment around climate change.

Yet - campuses continue to support dirty energy that is fueling the climate crisis, and making people sick. Students must stand in solidarity with communities being impacted by climate change and dirty energy, and demand that our campuses clean up their act.

What will you do to Take Back Earth Day? Check out our new video and put your campus on the map!

We’ve got to hold campuses accountable to their climate commitments, and push them to make a clean break from big polluters: divesting from fossil fuels and moving to 100% clean energy.

Whether you are already organizing an Earth Day event, or want to start planning one, put it on the map to become a part of the national story of young people taking action for the climate.
