Come together for Earth Day

A summary can be found at the end.


Regardless of our backgrounds, our nationalities, beliefs or identities, we all call the same planet Earth our home. It’s up to us, every human, to cherish it and protect it for the generations to come. While we have to protect and preserve it every day, Earth Day serves since 1970 as the yearly reminder of our shared responsibility. It’s a day to address the environmental challenges we face, promote sustainability and take action together. 

Earth Day is a day to come together to inspire each other to take action - to protect our Earth. You could be the kickstarter of an event, or join an event near where you live. If you don’t want to do it as a group effort, you can still make a change on your own. How? Well we have some goSupertips to get you started.

  • Take a walk through your neighborhood and bring along a bag to collect any litter you find along the way to protect animals.

  • Reduce your carbon footprint by making simple changes. It’s quite easy, shut down your laptop when logging out of goSupermodel instead of keeping it on, turn off the lights when leaving a room, take shorter showers, scale down on meat consumption and recycle things like paper, glass and plastic. 

  • Have a garden? Plant a tree! Having a balcony? Consider planting flowers, vegetables or herbs. 

  • Challenge yourself to have a zero waste day by avoiding single-use plastics and minimize your waste. So no plastic bottles, and no waste - do you think you can do it? 


Climate change is also a human rights issue

Even though climate change affects us all, it first and foremost affects our most vulnerable citizens most severely. More people are likely to experience homelessness due to climate change, and communities have already been displaced due to extreme weather events. Homeless people are also at greater risk for health conditions in extreme heat, such as heat stroke and dehydration.


Climate change also worsens the difficulties that indigenous people and communities already face and threatens their ability to exercise their constitutionally protected rights and traditional lifestyle practices. Climate change can affect the lives of indigenous people in a number of ways, like by complicating their access to essential resources such as clean drinking water, by forcing indigenous communities to migrate away from their lands, or by endangering their traditional food sources due to the changing ecosystem.


These are only some examples that remind us that climate change is also an issue of human rights, which is why it’s important not to overlook environmental issues when discussing human rights, and the other way around.

goCollect Trash in your neighborhood

Consider taking a small break from goSupermodel today to help out - because saving the Earth is not a one-person job, it’s a collective effort, and every small action counts. Grab a trash bag, step outside and take a stroll around your neighborhood. Snap a photo in action, showcasing your trash bag filled with litter. The photo needs to include a small piece of (recycled) paper displaying your goSupermodel username to be deemed valid. You have until Friday, April 26, 23:59 CET to post your action photo on this topic. We will pick a total of 10 winners that will get a goMoney reward and every valid entry will receive a little prize.
