In celebration of Earth Day 2015, the Corporate Environmental Lawyer blog will host a special campaign April 20-24 featuring a daily Earth Day trivia question, as well as unique news and stories about Earth Day events and activities taking place around the world, in addition to important developments in environmental law. As environmental lawyers, this is a good day for us to remember the contributions our clients and friends make to improving the environment in the communities where we live and work.
Earth Day 2015 commemorates the 45th anniversary of the first Earth Day held on April 22, 1970. This year more than 1 billion people in 192 countries will participate in Earth Day activities and events, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
To celebrate Earth Day, the Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day organizers will host a free event on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 18, featuring presentations and remarks by U.S. and UN leaders, as well as entertainment throughout the day from No Doubt, Usher, Fall Out Boy, Mary J. Blige, Train, and others. This special event will be web streamed live at www.globalcitizen2015earthday.org.
