Each of us was born with a unique voice.
Our stories have never mattered more. Our planet is changing. The facts about climate change are out there. Yet humanity responds more powerfully to stories than straight facts. It's time to speak up for climate action—through our personal stories.
Take Action Today
Stand up for our one and only Earth. Let your leaders in Congress know that you're holding them accountable—and that you want real action on climate change, environmental protection and valuing science.
It's been 50 years since the first Earth Day.
The environmental challenges of our present day are formidable. But humanity can solve these challenges. Look no further than the advances for cleaner air and water sparked by the initial Earth Day in 1970.
As we focus on solving the challenges of a warming planet, it's important not to lose sight of the human element. Too often lost in the numbers, reports and projections are the faces of real people whose families and livelihoods are being affected—right now.
For the 50th Earth Day, The Nature Conservancy invites you throughout the month of April to join in a campaign highlighting the very human side of climate change. We're bringing you face-to-face with the people who are raising their voices about the challenge of our time.
These people are speaking up. It's time we all do.
As Earth Month nears, stay tuned for more.
In the meantime, speak out to your members of Congress about the importance of science and tackling climate change. And learn some tips that can make your next conversation about climate change more productive.
