Join us online for Earth Day's 50th anniversary

Fifty years ago 20 million people took to the streets for the sake of the environment. It was the world's first Earth Day. This year, for the Earth Day 50th anniversary, millions will rise again… and this time change is inevitable.

Jennifer Lenhart

Global Lead, Cities, WWF

As a child, I grew up in the USA; but spent much time with family in Sweden. I hated parking lots and loathed suburbia which had no mystery or history. I remember comparing and contrasting different types of "cities." Slowly I learned that the suburban way of life was also environmentally detrimental (for climate, land use, resources) and that cities and citizens could thrive in compact (and lively) urban spaces with a lower environmental footprint, while conserving the wild spaces I also love. The fascination continues.
