For 41 years, Earth Day has been a moment to pause and reflect on the state of the environment and humanity's place within it. This leads some to action—be it personal or political—and many to wonder why this reflection is absent from the majority of the other 364 days of the year.
This Earth Day, Philippe Cousteau, EarthEcho International, and the UNEP are working together to help students eek out a few more weeks of awareness and action.During the six-week Bridging the Gap Challenge—which spans the period between Earth Day and World Environment Day on June 5—EarthEcho and UNEP will provide students and educators with extensive web-based tools, service-learning materials and a wealth of content designed to help them take action starting in their own backyards.
