April 20, 2021 starts off the three days of climate action leading up to Earth Day on April 22, 2021.

The theme for #EarthDay this year is #RestoreOurEarth which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.

The day brings to the forefront the collective responsibility we as global citizens have to protect, preserve, and restore our planet.

There are many ways that an individual can make a global impact:
1. Organize a community clean up and keep your local communities clear of harmful litter and trash that can impact local wildlife, habitats and landscapes.

2. Advocate for Climate Action and Sustainability by reaching out to your local representative and/or join local climate action groups such as Mississauga Climate Action: http://mississaugaclimateaction.ca/ or Peel Climate Council: https://www.communityclimatecouncil.org/

3. Help create a healthy biodiverse ecosystem by planting some pollinator plants: www.bloomingboulevards.org

4. Organize or participate in a tree planting event: https://www.onemilliontrees.ca/#planting_programs

5. Get out and appreciate the local ecosystems while adhering to protocols i.e. staying on the designated trails to avoid disrupting local flora and fauna. Take a Heritage Mississauga Walking Tour: https://heritagemississauga.com/heritage-tours/
