Fifty years ago, 20 million people took to the streets for the sake of the environment. It was the world’s first Earth Day.
This year we neither can’t nor need to take to the streets. Let’s act on climate and make your voice heard. Join our public, online, no-fly climate conference.
We at Below2°C are pleased to be a contributing partner in this year’s We Don’t Have Time online no-fly conference. Please join us starting Monday, April 20th.

Earth Day Week, April 20-25
Together with Earth Day Network and Exponential Roadmap we present Earth Day Week. We’ll be broadcasting live talks and other daily shows from Washington DC, Stockholm and from almost all continents on Earth.
For the third consecutive year we bring you a public, free, online, no-fly climate conference. The program features the brightest minds to discuss solutions—within five main themes—to the most daring challenge humanity has ever faced: the climate crisis.
The daily program:
A few Canadians are featured in this special Earth Day’s 50th anniversary conference:
Day 1 – “It’s time to Fire Your Fossil Bank” featuring Rolly Montpellier, Co-founder and Editor for Below 2C, Ambassador Canada for We Don’t Have Time and “Switch to a fossil-free bank” with Mohan Kumar, Campaigner with 350 Ottawa.
Day 2 – Mitchell Beer, Publisher, The Energy Mix — “Asking the right question: Building wider buy-in for climate action, before and during the pandemic”.
Day 5 – Matthew Chapman, Campaign Coordinator, Climate Reality Canada, Co-chair of the Cities Caucus of CAN-Canada.
At the first Earth Day, some 50 million people showed up for the environment. This year, for the Earth Day 50th anniversary, millions will rise again… and this time change is inevitable.

Where you write: “This year we neither can’t nor need to take to the streets,” my thinking is that it isn’t a “neither/nor” situation but rather a “we shouldn’t” gather – period – for this year’s observance of Earth Day/Week. I hope other people reading this arrive at the same conclusion.
Alan – The online conference is exactly what you’re calling for. It’s a “we shouldn’t” gather event. It’s also described as a no-fly conference. This is the 3rd year for this event.
