Earth Day

Earth Day is Monday, April 22, 2024. Invest in our Planet.

This is the moment to change it all — the business climate, the political climate, and how we take action on climate. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods.

For Earth Day 2024, we need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.

Community clean-up

Join us in making our city shine brighter, starting on Earth Day, April 22, and extending through May 22, 2024 for our Litter Blitz.
