Marc McGinnes intends to serve as an “Earth Ambassador" for Earth Day 2020, for a term beginning in August of this year and lasting until the conclusion of the worldwide observances of Earth Day in April 2020 and their aftermath. It will be the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, and he's committed to doing all he can to make it the most consequential series of Earth Day events in history. His year-long service as an Earth Day 2020 Ambassador will include his work each day during the Fall 2019 Semester at Sea voyage, commencing in Amsterdam in September 2019, and ending in San Diego in December 2019. We invite and appreciate your support! We have only until June 11th (update: extended until June 30th!) to raise $30,000 (19K raised! $11K to go!) to cover the expenses of this project to reaffirm, reanimate, support and harness citizens around the world to stand up for the Earth.
