At the Earth Institute, every day is Earth Day. We spend our lives uncovering the secrets of the earth and environmental systems, and then putting that knowledge to good use through policy, public outreach, and personal action. On Saturday, April 21, we were delighted to share our enthusiasm for the planet as part of New York City’s Car-Free Earth Day.
In celebration of Earth Day, the city closed off 30 blocks of Broadway to cars, allowing people to walk or bike between booths and activities to learn more about climate change and other pressing environmental issues. We had a blast spreading the word about how everyone can help, and hearing from others about what steps they’re taking to protect the environment. Check out the photos below to learn more.
