Media tools play a crucial role in mobilizing climate activism. They help to inspire, connect, and engage individuals and communities in collective action. Through social media campaigns, online petitions, and crowdfunding platforms, media tools facilitate the organization of protests, rallies, and other climate-related events. They also enable the sharing of resources, strategies, and success stories, fostering a sense of empowerment and unity among activists.
Also, media tools serve as a watchdog by holding governments, corporations, and other powerful entities accountable for their actions (or inactions) regarding climate change. Investigative journalism, documentaries, and online platforms expose environmental injustices, corporate malpractice, and policy failures, putting pressure on decision-makers to take meaningful action.

"Tomorrow" is a documentary film that explores various global initiatives and solutions to address climate change, sustainability, and ecological challenges. The film takes a positive and proactive approach by highlighting inspiring stories of individuals and communities around the world who are making a difference.

This past weekend, on 22 April 2023, the world celebrated the planet Earth that we get to call home!
The theme for 2023 is focused on: “Everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable, #InvestInOurPlanet”
EarthDay.org are focused on reframing the conversation that accelerates action, and brings everyone together to understand that this is within our reach if we work together.
We support all initiatives as ECO-MEDIA, especially virtual or in—person actions that bring together volunteers across the world to join the largest environmental movement on Earth!
For example, Earth Day Italia annually hosts the 5-day celebration for World Earth Day in what is referred to as the green heart of Rome between the Pincio Terrace and the Villa Borghese Galoppatoio.
These unforgettable five days hold ample opportunities to indulge in entertainment, culture, sport, and environment, with a full schedule of celebrations, institutional meetings, forums, shows, and a village dedicated to children with playful and educational workshops.
Let us know, what did you get up to for Earth Day 2023?

🆘ECO-MEDIA PRESENTS PLASTIC FACTS🆘
A study published in the journal Environmental International, 2022, revealed that microplastic pollution has officially been detected in human blood. These microplastics have become a major threat to human and animal health.
In June 2019, the EU adopted new rules to target the issue of plastic marine litter. It includes a 25% target for recycled content in plastic bottles by 2025 and 30% by 2030.
One way to protect the greater population of animals and humans from microplastics is to ensure that public spaces, such as beaches are free from plastic litter.
In one of our ECO-MEDIA partner countries, Cyprus, tackling plastic marine litter has been an area of focus. For three consecutive years, Young Cyprus Greens, Ecological Movement Cyprus Centre for Social Innovation and RESET – Research and Education in Social Empowerment and Transformation, have organised the Wish You Were Clean beach clean-up campaign. Young volunteers clean up the beaches across the island. There is a “huge problem” of plastic waste in coastal areas, especially single-use plastic, which impacts both marine ecosystems and human health.
In the images we provide some ideas of how you can reduce/ avoid microplastics in your everyday life.
