2017: Environmental & Climate Literacy
In light of the new challenges that environmentalists now face on a national level, this year ECOS has chosen to align the Sacramento Earth Day theme with that of the national Earth Day Network, which is Environmental and Climate Literacy.
“Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection. Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate laws and policies, but also for accelerating green technologies and jobs.” – Earth Day Network
