The Earth Day Theme for 2023:

According to, "Acting as a continuation of last year’s well-received campaign, the 2023 theme - Invest in Our Planet - is focused on engaging governments, institutions and businesses with individuals, communities and conservation organizations to be accountable for taking            cutting-edge approaches in order to make the progress necessary to tackle the climate crisis."

By all accounts, this is a critical theme for the world as a whole. But what exactly does this mean to us as students?

Investing doesn't just mean spending money! It can also be investing in time by learning about the impact of climate change and what reduce, reuse and recyle mean. 

Investment can also be taking action to make changes in your daily life; plant trees; not waste water; reduce your carbon footprint; pick up litter/trash in a park;  and volunteer with a nonprofit organization, etc. Each of these seemingly small actions can help make our planet healthier.

Sharing what you've learned with other students and adults also is investing in our planet. Having conversations about climate challenges helps encourage others to consider what they can do.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing our planet today. The only way to make a real difference is by bringing people together, regardless of age, to discuss how we can make a positive impact on our environment. That’s how KID POWER can raise awareness of the need to work together, building a better future for ourselves and generations to come. We can do this!

Call to Action for students of all ages:

Be accountable for helping to address the challenges of climate change to our planet and our generation.
