How You Can Create a Brighter Earth!

Protecting the Earth

Earth Day is coming, and this is the time of the year to start making simple changes that will make big differences for our planet. Recycle, turn off the water when you brush your teeth, get a reusable bottle for your beverages, support local farmers, make compost, learn why climate change is a real thing, understand how to reduce your carbon footprint, and share your knowledge.  And repeat!


Getting Involved in the Community

This is also a good time of the year to show up and get involved: City Lore has a new exhibition, What We Bring: New Immigrant Gifts, opening on April 6th in their gallery; on April 9th the United Nations offers a Panel Discussion on Climate Change and Sustainable Development Goals at the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office; and the March for Science New York City takes place on April 14th, from Washington Square to downtown Manhattan.

This week, NYXT’s block of programming is All Over the Earth and will air starting Monday April 9 at 10am, 3pm, and 9pm, sharing stories about different communities all over our planet from Human Rights Watch, the Institute of Play, Art21, DIY, and many others. We're also featuring some NYXT originals from our Waste Not Want Not series on sustainability. You can watch NYXT on Spectrum (channel 1992), FiOS (channel 38) or on our livestream.
