The 46th annual Earth Day is here, and New York City is doing its part to help the planet. On Sunday, April 17, visit Union Square to take part in concerts, interactive displays, kids’ activities and environmental demonstrations. On Friday, April 22, a 5K “Green Tour” raising money for environmental educational programs invites participants to tour eco-mindful sights in the city, such as a green roof and the Lowline (the world’s first underground park, being built now). Around the world, Earth Day celebrations are aiming to plant 7.8 billion trees as the annual event gears up for its 50th anniversary.
