Every day is Earth Day – find out what you can do for climate justice

Thursday 22nd April is Earth Day – a day of action to inspire and unite trade union and environmental activists around the world. 

Here branch Green champion Steven Gray tells us what it’s about and how you can get involved.

“More than 1 billion people in 192 countries now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. Earth Day has spread far and wide since its start as a day of action to inspire and unite trade union and environmental activists in the America of the 1970’s. Click here to go to the Earth Day organisation and its activities.

“Here in Scotland and the rest of the UK UNISON is planning our own events which you are invited to attend. Be inspired to be a part of Earth Day, join in with climate actions and think of ways you can make a difference with your workplace colleagues.

“Remember the World is coming to the COP26 Climate Emergency Conference in Glasgow this November.  Climate justice requires social justice which you can find out more about on the UNISON Scotland and UNISON UK websites included here.
