Earth Challenge 2020 has launched – an interesting program with two goals.
First goal is to aggregate existing citizen science from around the world and make it interoperable, creating a coordinated point of entry for the research and public policy community. Second, to give each user of the Earth Challenge 2020 app the opportunity to take a civic action specifically related to issues in their own country.
The app is available in 11 languages. For Earth Day, we will focus on two research areas: air quality and plastic pollution. Over the coming months, issue areas will be added on insects, water quality, food security and local climate impacts.

Led by principle partners Earth Day Network, the Wilson Center and the U.S. Department of State’s Eco-Capitals Forum, Earth Challenge has been in development for over three years and has attracted a broad alliance of organizations and institutions globally.
