A bit of our history
The Earth Society Foundation was established by John McConnell and Margaret Mead to foster worldwide participation in the peaceful care of Earth, and to promote the annual celebration of Earth Day on the March Equinox (March 20-21).
The Earth Society Foundation, Inc., incorporated in the State of New York, is the original and solely legitimate organization preserving the celebration of Earth Day (March Equinox, March 20-21) with the ringing of the Peace Bell at UN Headquarters in New York City. The Earth Society Foundation, Inc. has organized this annual celebration for 53 years. The designation of Earth Trustee for supporters of Earth Day and those dedicated to peace, justice and care of Earth was originally developed by John McConnell, co-founder of the Earth Society Foundation in 1976.
