      Earth Day Canada Event Organizers 2004

      Inspiration - Motivation - Action

      Earth Day 2004
      Earth Day Canada (EDC) believes that Canadians working together in
      their communities accomplish the most important environmental work.
      Cumulatively, their individual actions yield enormous positive
      results. It is EDC's view that the most powerful tool the
      environmental movement has in order to be successful is sheer numbers
      of participants actively involved. People get involved through
      inspiration and motivation.

      This year, our message for Earth Day speaks very strongly to this.
      Our poster image shows average people doing their part for the
      environment. They are actively involved because they want to, and
      feel they need to do their part to help deal with environmental
      issues. The cumulative efforts of many will be the basis of our
      environmental successes.
      It is now time to start planning your Earth Day 2004 activities. In
      order to accommodate the large number of events, festivals, and
      environmental initiatives that take place on and around April 22, the
      entire month of April has been declared Earth Month.
      The following will help get you started. Please let us know if there
      is anything we can do to help.
      Event Ideas
      There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day. You can choose an Earth
      Day activity that will help you reduce your personal impact on the
      environment, such as becoming more energy efficient in your home, or
      you can choose an activity that is relevant to your community, such
      as taking part in a community clean up or tree planting event. For
      more ideas, go to www.earthday.ca, click on Events, then Previous
      Event Highlights. Click on Search to find out what's happening in
      your community this year.

      Be sure to register your Earth Day activity or event. It's easy to
      register online at www.earthday.ca, (go to Events, then Register).
      Registration helps us track what's happening nationally for Earth Day
      and will help generate publicity for your efforts. Registration also
      helps to inspire others to act positively to address pollution and
      environmental degradation.
      Event Support
      Order Earth Day Canada merchandise to help promote your event, to use
      as prizes, and to give to volunteers. We have some very unusual eco

      Promotional materials can be ordered from our office. The Earth Day
      issue of Solutions will inspire you to take personal environmental
      action. Brochures include information on Earth Day Canada's programs,
      resources, and ideas for Earth Day and every day.
      Posters will be 12"x 37" with blank space on the bottom for
      overprinting your event information. They can be used as signage for
      your event, prizes, or used as a fundraiser by giving them away in
      return for donations. Event Organizers can request two free posters,
      as well as brochures, and newsletters by completing the order form

      Volunteers to help with your event can be recruited from many
      sources. Advertise in your local community newspaper, contact
      organizations such as Girl Guides, Scouts, and Cubs, ask the guidance
      office at your local high school for students needing to complete
      volunteer hours, and notify churches and service organizations that
      you are looking for volunteers. As well, ask your friends and
      neighbours. After all, it's for a good cause!
