The Earth Day 50 Challenge

On Earth Day 2016, a diverse group of approximately 100 corporate, environmental, academic, and philanthropic leaders gathered in Dallas, Texas, to launch an unprecedented collaboration. Their mission: Halt & repair decades of damage to the world’s oceans, forests, and climate by April 2020 – the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

Participants agreed that the commitments stemming from this challenge must cover a wide scope of issues, from civil rights and land use policies to materiality and waste reduction all the way down the supply chain. Throughout the three-day convening, these civil service and corporate leaders identified key systemic solutions to address these global issues at their core.

Systemic Solutions Defined

Few environmental initiatives are purely systemic, but the more they reflect systemic principles, the more affordable and effective they can be. Well-designed systems can be favorable both to prosperity and sustainability. Corporate and advocacy representatives who answered the Earth Day 50 Challenge have committed to a collaborative process for identifying and implementing these systemic solutions by Earth Day 2020.

This infographic highlights how these solutions can be implemented to solve a broad scope of complex global issues. For more information, download a copy of the Earth Day 50 Challenge Report at Future500.org.
