Guidelines for Submissions

My Earth Changing Moments lets you share your ‘aha moment’ about the environment with others to generate greater understanding and energize our national conversation on the environment.

Share your Earth Changing Moment any way you like, whether through a video, photo, or mini essay.  Scroll down the page to Submission Options to choose how you share your Earth Changing Moment. Note: video submissions are through YouTube.

Share how an experience or set of experiences taught you about the environment you live in, changed your perspective, or inspired you to do something differently. Consider these questions prior to submitting your Earth Changing Moment:

  • How? How did it happen? Was it a flash of brilliance or a gradual understanding?
  • Why? Why did it happen? What, or who, was the trigger? Was it a teacher, a parent, a television show?
  • Then what? What impact did it have? What change did it lead to?
