Earth Day 2024—Exploring the Beauty of the Planet, Championing Sustainability

Nature provides the air we breathe, the water we drink, and countless other resources. But the future of nature is uncertain. We’re losing forests, wildlife, fresh water, and more at an unprecedented rate. While it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by these issues, we have the power to make a change.

From now until Earth Day (April 22), find an hour each day to explore the beauty of our planet while being a champion for its conservation. You and your students can explore ways to give an hour for Earth with the many Hour Bank activities from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

Maybe you will create art from recycled or discarded plastic, or plant a pollinator garden and track its visitors, or embark on a sustainable scavenger hunt. WWF’s Hour Bank activities are accessible in English and Spanish. You can find ideas based on Interest (Fitness & Wellness, Nature, Food, Sustainability, Arts & Creativity, Entertainment) or by Type of Activity (Virtual, Physical, Child Friendly).

What if an hour isn’t just an hour, but the spark we need for change?
