EarthAction's mission is to inform and inspire people everywhere to turn their concern, passion and outrage into meaningful action for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. EarthAction is the world’s largest action network with over 2,600 organizations in 165 countries and thousands of policymakers, journalists and citizens. We have carried out 100 campaigns since we began at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992.
EarthAction organizes global campaigns on the world’s most pressing problems. For most campaign we create and distribute, via email and post, Action Kits that include timely, compelling ready-to-use materials. Each Kit provides brief information on one important issue and recommends a simple action to take. Organizations and individuals use the materials in the Kits to educate and mobilize their members, friends, media and government. Our Legislative Kits inform policymakers about the best policies on issues they care about, and our Media Kits provide accurate cutting-edge information to journalists.
