Earth Day 2020

Happy Earth Day!

2022 is the 50 year anniversary of Earth Day! We hope you can find a way to celebrate our world today. If you can get outside, try walking barefoot on the grass, stopping to really study a leaf, or insects going about their lives; do some cloud watching or hug your favourite tree.

"On April 22, we’re flooding the world with hope, optimism and action." The official Earth Day website has tons of brilliant information & resources, including

Celebrating Dandelions for Earth Day

A blog post by Professor Jan White

"On Wednesday 22nd April, Earth Day reaches its 50th birthday, and this year it will be a huge global online event. While immersed in our current combined environmental and health crisis, it’s more important than ever that we seek to address the great imbalances that human activity has generated for our planet. Inspired by Juliet Robertson’s post (see below) about celebrating this important event, this post was originally written for Earth Day 2012 to celebrate Britain’s best plant – the Dandelion. I offer it again here to bring its irrepressible optimism and solution-focused resilience into our spirits and thoughts – and to explain just some of the reasons why this fabulous wildflower is the perfect logo for Early Childhood Outdoors!"
