Starting on April 22nd, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, celebrities will join activists, politicians, and artists for Earth Day Live, a three-day live stream and online mobilization led by youth climate leaders.

Earth Day Live will include performances and appearances from entertainers across music, TV, and film.

There will be DJ sets each evening to help build community and grow the climate movement.

The program includes unique celebrity-activist exchanges, including a segment with communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis, hosted by actor Luke Baines and journalist Sharon Carpenter and a discussion about climate grief with New York Magazine Deputy Editor and “The Uninhabitable Earth” author David Wallace Wells and climate psychologist Margaret Klein Salamon.

The live show aims to spur collective action to protect our communities and our planet, through performances, conversations, and training sessions curated by climate activists.

Earth Day Live will be live from 9a-9p ET on April 22, 23, and 24th on http://www.earthdaylive2020.org/ and accessible to watch on platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Twitch.
