20 Earth Day ideas for event planners 

20 Earth Day ideas for event planners 

Earth Day is just around the corner – and this year’s theme is to Invest in our Planet.

As an event planner, one way you can do so is to recognise Earth Day through your events, whether that’s to raise money for a specific charity or simply to get attendees thinking. Raising awareness alone can be an incredibly powerful tool when it comes to encouraging others to take action. So it’s definitely worthwhile taking some time to give one or more of your events an Earth Day theme over the course of the next month or so.

On that note – below are 20 ideas to get you started. We’ve broken them down into ideas for:

  • Craft workshop events/classes

  • Fitness & wellness events/classes

  • Community events

  • Music, entertainment & other events

Let’s go 👀👇.
