The annual Earth Day observance takes place on April 22nd and approximately one billion people from all over the world are expected to participate in the promotional event that hopes to raise awareness for the environment and the Earth in general.

So what is happening to celebrate this cause?

Fans of music will be able to see a number of top artists perform at the Green Apple Festival, a weekend of environmental awareness “culminating on Sunday, April 20th with eight free festivals occurring simultaneously at landmark locations across the U.S.” Musicians scheduled to perform around the cities over the weekend include Kate Nash, Saul Williams, Juliette & The Licks and The Roots.

Closer to home, Deepdale Farm will play host to the North Norfolk Coast Earth Day Event. The six-hour exhibition is free to the public and takes place on Earth Day itself, April 22nd, 10am-4pm.

In the online world, Vegan Girl Next Door has reported that a free digital copy of the Vegetarian Times magazine has been released online with the idea that every online page turned is helping to save trees commonly used for publishing. To read the free magazine, click here

Sticking with the internet, a Youtube video by user ‘everydayuncommon‘ has set out to spread the word about an online project from NerdFighters. A post made on their online forum explains that the aim is for users worldwide to “head out into our very own communities and do some clean up… garbage on the side of the road… clean up a local spring/pond/lake/river/beach/etc… pick up trash in a park… or a nature trail… whatever! Then weigh the collected debris and report back to me and I can tally all the waste collected.”

If you are looking to get in on the action yourself and still need ideas, the Earth Day Network has a number of tips on how they feel you can make a difference. There’s also a forum where you can participate in discussions and even make suggestions of your own.

Don’t forget to join the Earth Day Facebook group for more information.
