Like environmental organizations around the world, 350 Madison had big plans for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. When the coronavirus pandemic required that those plans be shelved, we got creative! We quickly switched gears from organizing live, in-person actions and celebrations in downtown Madison to hosting a series of online events.

Embracing the theme of “Looking Back, Moving Forward,” we celebrated movement achievements since the first Earth Day, made props and other art for the time when we can again march together in the streets, and participated in the nationwide “Stop the Money Pipeline” campaign.


Take a moment to watch this moving video tribute to 50 Years of Earth Day created by our talented videographer, Alicia Shoberg. Then join us as we renew and strengthen our commitment to the work of preserving a livable planet for future generations!
