The musical features appearances from young climate activists as well as Ben Platt, Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, CNCO, Cody Simpson, Idina Menzel, Jack Harlow, Steve Aoki, and Tori Kelly. Zac Efron, Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Karamo Brown and Nick Kroll.
The youngest member of the Biden White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council, 18-year-old Jerome Foster II, will also make a special appearance.
There are plenty of young activists involved with this special. 15-year-old activist and organizer Alexandria Villaseñor as well as actress and activist Milana Vayntrub will help host the event.
“Honored to co-host the EARTHDAY.org livestream … and to introduce incredible artists, movement leaders, and people doing the work daily to make our planet safer,” Vayntrub shared on Instagram.
Bill Nye takes this opportunity to teach viewers how they can take action for environmental causes as well as how we can help restore the planet going forward. Throughout the event and afterward, Facebook will promote the hashtag #RestoreOurEarthChallenge. This challenge encourages viewers to share photos and other content showing how they plan to reduce the effects of climate change and save the planet.
