Earth Day's Grassroots Beginnings in Student Activism & ‘Common Ground’ for Schools

Earth Day, observed annually on April 22nd, traces its origins to a grassroots movement that emerged in the United States during the 1970s. The inaugural Earth Day, held on April 22, 1970, was a response to mounting environmental concerns fueled by events such as the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill. Earth Day began as a student-led protest, mobilizing millions of people across the nation to advocate for environmental protection and conservation. The movement gained momentum, leading to the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the passage of key environmental legislation, including the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act.

As we commemorate Earth Day's origins in student activism for environmental protection, it is crucial to recognize the ongoing role of education in shaping a regenerative future. Common Ground is offering "Common Ground" for Schools as a free educational tool for teachers, available for pre-order now! The curriculum emphasizes solutions to our climate crisis and addresses topics such as Regeneration, Social Justice, Food Sovereignty, and Politics. Together we can inspire students to become proactive stewards of the planet and champions of regenerative practices.
