Celebrating Earth Week 2020 in Evanston

Caring for community. Connecting through nature.

The 50th anniversary of Earth Day confronts us with a huge challenge: How can we keep taking action on climate change if we can’t gather in person? In answer, the City of Evanston and several environmental groups are collaborating to host an entire week of online events starting on Monday, April 20. Some of them will also be sharing online resources that you can use at home to educate yourself and your family. Check the City’s website for a full list of its events, and check this site and CGE’s Facebook page for frequent updates. Events include:

Earth Day at 50 Years – a Celebration! in Evanston Illinois on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 7 PM – 9 PM. Welcome by Evanston Mayor Steve Hagerty, words from State Rep. Robyn Gabel, and lots of online activities.

Evanston Virtual Earth Day Dialogue on Friday, April 24 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. During this lunchtime webinar, sustainability professionals will discuss the legacy of Earth Day, the current health pandemic, and what steps we should take to keep climate conversations moving forward. Register here.
