Each year in the spring, the 30 acre Forsyth Park at the heart of the historic district becomes the nucleus of the city’s green initiatives. It is a celebration of environmentally responsible living and business in coastal Georgia. Earth Day Savannah serves as an important opportunity for local government, businesses, non-profits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other. It is the City’s largest environmental outreach event of the year, and the largest educational Earth Day related event in Georgia.
The Savannah-Chatham Sustainability Coalition (SCSC) is partnering with local nonprofits to co-coordinate and publicize “Earth Day Savannah Month.” This will be a sustainable and safe way for businesses and environmental nonprofits to connect with the public and strengthen the environmental network in our community. The month-long event will be a celebration of Earth Day in April, featuring a collective of virtual and small, in-person events.

During the month of April, over 20 environmental and community nonprofits are hosting events throughout Chatham County. This month-long event will be a celebration of Earth Day in April, featuring a collective of virtual and small, in-person events. Nonprofits will customize and plan their own “Make Earth Day Every Day” events.
The overall intention of EDS 2021 is to build community awareness and support to protect our planet by supporting our city and local environmental nonprofits as they help our community transition to 100% clean, renewable energy.

Savannah artist, Joanne Morton is inviting the public to be a part of her community engagement art project, The Manifesting Mobile . The Manifesting Mobile’s aim is to unite the community by sharing people’s visions for a healthy planet by building a large-scale, hanging art mobile. The Manifesting Mobile will be displayed the week of Earth Day (April 22nd) for the public to view.
Earth Day Savannah is expanding and growing because of the support of our generous sustaining sponsors. These businesses see the value in collaboration with community nonprofits to protect our natural resources, find solutions for climate change and heal our planet.
