Earth Day Network – 50 Years

New resource related to solving global environmental problems added to PMWL

22 April 2020 – Washington, DC, USA – Access to a new resource has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL) related to solving global problems.  The resource is titled “Earth Day Network” and is one of the world’s largest global networks of people working to help solve local, regional and global environmental problems. Today is the 50th Anniversary Earth Day, the perfect day to add this major resource to the library.

Created in 1970, the Earth Day Network (EDN) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC, USA. In 1970, 20 million individuals — at the time, 10% of the U.S. population — mobilized to call for greater protections for our planet. This became the world’s first Earth Day. In the 50 years since, EDN has created civically–oriented innovative programs with partners both inside and outside of the environmental movement to tackle new challenges. Their environmental campaigns mobilize individuals around the world on issues from voter registration to environmental education.

Our world needs transformational change. It’s time for the world to hold sectors accountable for their role in our environmental crisis while also calling for bold, creative, and innovative solutions. This will require action at all levels, from business and investment to city and national government. EDN’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Growing out of the first Earth Day in 1970, EDN is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 75,000 partners in over 190 countries to drive positive action for our planet.

The PMWL provides information about global problems in order to educate readers and promote the application of modern project management to help solve those problems. We support all efforts to save the planet and improve the lives of more people. Working together, we can make a difference.
