It is earth day today, “Tag der Erde.” Last year I was co-working on a beautiful non-profit first aid global homeschooling project. So, in response to the Covid-19 Crisis in 2020, we were part of an unprecedented coalition of over fifty environmental and education experts collaborating to launch The Earth School: 30 adventures for learners of all ages to discover, celebrate, and connect to nature. This global team came together under the guidance and support of TED-Ed and UNEP to design lessons for students of all levels and host Earth School when it matters the most.


Young people were stuck inside, more disconnected from nature than ever before. Earth School encouraged young people to understand how wildlife and our ecosystems provide the foundations for a healthy planet and healthy people. It has been about carbon in the sky, climate change, and many other relevant topics.

I am super proud to have contributed to the plastic quest, and we had such a blast preparing it. Hopefully, most of the kids are back in nature by now and able to cherish our planet in a more post-pandemic world.

My all-time favorite is still this video you find below; please check it out, and, oh yes, happy Earth Day!
