Earth Day 2009, April 22, marked the beginning of The Green Generation Campaign which was also the focus of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2010.
With negotiations for a new global climate agreement in December 2010, Earth Day 2010 was setup as a day of action and civic participation, to defend The Green GenerationTM’s core principles:
• A carbon-free future based on renewable energy that will end our common dependency on fossil fuels, including coal.
• An individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.
• Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.
