The 50th Anniversary of Earth Day

“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.” Khalil Gibran

Today we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and join the official call to ‘flood the world with hope, optimism and action’. [source] While we have seen the world around us change in the last few weeks, least of all the last 50 years… and have witnessed countless debates about climate change and our environment, today we’re going to focus on the positive. Through the lens of photographers, our members, we show how we see our planet and what we can do as individuals.

According to the Earth Day Network there are more than 75,000 partners worldwide driving positive action and more than a billion people already involved. However, don’t underestimate your power. As an individual you have real power and influence. When your voice and your actions are united with thousands or millions of others around the world, together we create a movement that is inclusive, impactful and impossible to ignore. This is exactly what our #PhotographyForGood movement is about – by publishing just one photo, you help our whole community and people globally share your vision of the world, information, and learnings. By doing so you are helping to make their days and lives better.
