Earth Day Turns 50 And It’s Never Been More Critical | Pollstar News

When Earth Day turns 50 on April 22, it will be markedly different from every previous celebration. There won’t be hundreds of thousands shouting in unison at a concert; there will be no wave of grassroots cleanup and service events; no swell of in-class educational initiatives, as there have been through the past half-century. COVID-19, beyond gut-punching the live industry and the entire U.S. economy, has forced fundamental changes in day-to-day life and disrupted time-honored traditions new and old, and Earth Day has not been spared.  [from]
