Change is tomorrow but the decision is today. believing in the similar motive other NGO's have joined hands to support this initiative with all the regards.
With a uniform approach we are anticipating a larger positive impact in Thane especially at Yeoor Hills. educating the underprivileged rural kids and member of the territory, making the environment substantially greener and cleaner.
"Earth Day is April 22 of every year. April 22, 2020 will mark 50 years of Earth Day. The major theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge but also the vast opportunities of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.
Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable. Earth Day 2020 wants to recognize every person, every group, and every action being taken to improve our world whether it be lifestyle changes that cut emissions, action on plastics pollution, species protection, university and school teach-ins, tree plantings, local and global cleanups, switching to a more plant-based diets, or voting with your wallet and your ballot.
It’s that time of year again: Time to put 2019 — a tumultuous year of ups and downs for our planet to bed and start fresh with renewed energy and vision for 2020. 

To combat climate change, we need bold political action and transformative change across industries and sectors. But change also starts with individual action which should be the main focus for all to instill in each other and bring about sustained changes and protect our Mother Earth. Support Earth Day Network by joining its several initiatives such as Earth Rise, VoteEarth, Protect Our Species, Great Global Cleanup Campaign, #EndPlasticPollution, Artists for Earth, Earth Challenge 2020 and many more" Words by Pornica Chatterjee Assistant Manager Earth Day Network on Earthday 2020
