The topic for our IB global lessons in 2010 is the environment.
We encourage you to join with others all over the world with lessons or activities on (or around) Earth Day on 22 April. In this way our actions as individuals and schools form part of the IB community’s and the world’s response to marking our life together on Earth – the planet we share with each other, and with other species.
2010 is the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and this year also marks the first year when April 22 is celebrated as International Mother Earth Day, designated by the United Nations in 2009.
