Each year, the Earth Day Network calls on people around the world to act for the environment. For Earth Day 2020—the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the nonprofit’s theme is climate action.
Technology plays an increasingly important role in climate action, especially as this year’s Earth Day movement goes digital. However, one of the most effective innovations to address climate change already exists: the almighty tree.
