By using the sun, wind, and other renewable sources to generate energy, we can end dependence on the fossil fuels that pollute air and water, harm human health, and contribute to global warming.

More than a half a billion people will take part in Earth Day 2000, and the Clean Energy campaign will use this groundswell of support to push for clean energy projects and action on global warming worldwide.

Worldwide, Earth Day Network and its affiliates are focusing on the following seven areas. We invite organizations worldwide to set their own campaign goals relating to them.

The global reach of Earth Day Network will be used to publicize these goals and create national and international support for them. Already, more than 4,000 groups in 167 countries have joined the Earth Day 2000 campaign, and the numbers are growing every day.

Smart Energy
Adopt higher national standards and programs for energy efficiency to stop the waste of energy.

Safe Energy
Halt construction of all new nuclear power plants and decommission existing ones.
