Many of your know that the Earth Day ATX torch was passed in 2018 to a new nonprofit – Earth Day Austin. We gladly embraced this opportunity to help facilitate and shape our community’s conversation about sustainability. This year will mark the observance of the global 50th anniversary of Earth Day. It will be a moment in time where the community will pause and view ourselves. It will be a moment to reflect, to learn, to take action. What should we do with that moment? Who and what should be included? We want your input. Please see our purpose statement below, read our letter to community partners, and consider joining us.
If you cannot join us on the 17th, please share your thoughts in this SURVEY.
Earth Day Austin Statement of Purpose
Our mission is reinventing sustainability as an unprecedented cultural phenomenon with equity at the center. We provide a venue and a platform for businesses, advocacy groups, nonprofits, government organizations, and community leaders to connect with the public in the interest of sustainability, innovation and environmental justice.
While our flagship program is the Earth Day ATX festival, our greater purpose is to facilitate coordination among community stakeholders to develop and implement scalable, systemic, community-driven solutions. We serve a future in which Austin leads the way in systemic transformation toward a sustainable society for all people.
