The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970. This year, reports indicate more than one billion people from 195 countries participated in Earth Day activities focusing on education, public policy, and consumer efforts. Earth Day 2017 coincided with the first March for Science, a celebration and call to action to promote the importance of science and to encourage education, communication, and ties of mutual respect between scientists and communities. 

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the launch of Earth Day, the Network is striving to broaden the definition of “environment” to include issues that affect health and communities, such as greening schools and jobs, and promoting activism to eliminate air and water pollution – all based on science!

This past Saturday, I was glad to have the opportunity to participate in this important day in conjunction with my local AAUW Tech Savvy event. Tech Savvy is a daylong science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) conference designed to attract middle school girls into STEM careers. Our keynote speaker encouraged participants to keep asking why? It was educational and a blast…!
