Some individuals are urged to sign petitions to governments urging stronger or faster action to halt global warming and reverse environmental destruction. Environmentally related programs are frequently broadcast on television.

Sen. Gaylord Nelson established Earth Day on April 22 in 1970 with the goal of promoting ecology, respect for all life on Earth, and raising public awareness of the mounting issues associated with soil, water, and air pollution.
Some individuals like celebrating Earth Day around the time of the March equinox. American anthropologist Margaret Mead lent her support to John McConnell’s equinox Earth Day in 1978. She said that choosing the March Equinox as Earth Day’s date allowed for the celebration of a common event on a global scale.
