Earth Day and Earth Week: What Can you Expect From The Outdoor Journal?
Why the world's biggest environmental movement is important to us, an introduction to the Outdoor Voyage, and a sneak peek of The Outdoor Journal's Earth Week content to come.
The Outdoor Journal
Before you read, remember this: Independent editorial isn't free. If you enjoy this article, please consider creating an account to support our journalism so we can keep going.
“To educate and inspire all people to experience, enjoy and protect wilderness.”
This is The Outdoor Journal’s mission statement, and during Earth Day and Earth week, when appropriate levels of attention are being paid to the state of our world, and its plight, we will do everything that can to harness that momentum.
The Outdoor Journal is a call to action. We believe in clean air and blue skies. We believe in unpolluted rivers and plastic-free oceans, in pristine rainforests, clean beaches, green hills and open grasslands. We believe in living sustainably, ethical lives, in respect of the planet that has always provided for us. We believe in one Earth, with no nationalities and invented borders. We believe in saving whales and sharks, tigers and orangutans, bears, bees, baobabs and blackwoods. We believe in saving forests and wilderness areas now whilst we still can.
As you are here, reading this, we hope that you believe in the same thing.
Over the course of the next week, we are going to publish great content so that we play our part in raising awareness. The below will turn to links when each article is published:
- Wilderness Porn
- Three things everyone can do to fight climate change right now
- The top 5 petitions to sign on Earth Day
- Planet Earth and That Walrus Scene
- Costa Rica leads the way in its plastic-free and carbon-neutral promise
- Republicans have always been our Progressive Environmentalists?
