A Day of Climate Action in Redlands

Imagine!  A community-wide Day of Climate Action in Redlands to celebrate Earth Day 2024


Hundreds of volunteers from every part of town will come together at various locations to engage in projects that will help slow the warming and prepare Redlands for more severe climate impacts. At the end of the day, we will all come together at the Redlands Bowl to report on our accomplishments and celebrate with music, information tables, and speakers. Read more about Local Climate Impacts and our vision of building a climate-resilient community that these projects will address.


Last year we had 34 organizations and individuals sign up as Project Hosts! By the week before Earth Day, more than 500 had registered online! Thanks to the support of the City, IERCD, and the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District, and our many hosts, we did it!

Why Celebrate A Day of Climate Action?

Climate action projects throughout the community will give residents ideas for what they can do as families, neighborhoods and organizations to become more climate resilient. Some projects will give participants hands-on experience; others will be more educational or informational. Residents will benefit from having a chance to get acquainted with other concerned people in our community and seeing that there are things we can do right here where we live to soften the blows of climate impacts and reduce carbon emissions. Whether you participate as a Project Host or a Participant, you don't need to know a lot about climate change. All you need is the concern and the desire to make a difference. This will be a learning opportunity for everyone!

How Can You Participate as an Individual?

Climate action projects are being hosted the morning of Saturday, April 20th by many different groups and organizations in town. Just choose the project you would like to participate in and register through the project's Eventbrite link. 

At 12:30 pm there will be a celebration of accomplishments and a free lunch for all participants downtown at the Redlands Bowl. 

How Can Your Group Host a Project?

What does a project host do?
Project Hosts are groups that choose a project, design and organize it, provide materials needed, recruit their project's participants, and set up an Eventbrite page after registering HERE.

Project hosts may also have a table at the celebration event at the Redlands Bowl to continue outreach and community engagement. 

Earth Day - Then & Now

The first Earth Day was held in 1970 in the U.S. to highlight important environmental issues. It is now a global event with the aim of educating people and encouraging environmental action. The acceleration of climate change has brought new urgency and significance to this annual event, reminding us of what is at stake.

Carbon emissions reached an all-time high in 2023. The impacts are being felt worldwide, including here in Redlands with increasing heat and drought. We are on a dangerous path toward a global temperature increase of more than 2.0C (3.6F). Scientists say that immediate and unprecedented action is needed on all levels. We can start right where we live.

Get Inspired. Take Action in Our City.
