Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is a celebration of the earth and our environment. It is a historical event that takes place every year. On Earth Day, we will remember how closely we are connected to the earth, as well as our responsibility to protect it. On this day, we come together to show our support for the planet and make pledges to do our part in protecting it. All of us can contribute to the environment by planting trees, cleaning up waste, and reducing our dependence on non-renewable resources like fossil fuels.

Participating in this global event raises awareness of the importance of protecting our planet and its natural resources. In addition, it encourages people to engage in conserving the environment. Rallies, concerts, and tree-planting activities are among the many activities and events that take place on Earth Day.

Brief History of Earth Day

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. The event was organized by Gaylord Nelson, a United States Senator from Wisconsin. He was inspired to action after witnessing the damage caused by an oil spill in Santa Barbara, California in the year 1969.

Gaylord Nelson realized that there was a need for humans to become more environmentally aware and active in preserving our planet. He hoped that Earth Day would be a way to educate people about the importance of environmental protection.

Earth Day quickly became a global phenomenon. More than 20 million people participated in the events across the United States on the first Earth Day. Today, Earth Day is celebrated in more than 193 countries around the world. At present, more than 1 billion people around the world take part in Earth Day.

On April 22, 2020, Earth Day celebrated its 50th anniversary. The event, however, was organized through digital platforms due to Covid-19.

The purpose of Earth Day is to bring awareness to the environmental issues our planet faces and to promote solutions for a sustainable future.

Yes, it will be a continuation of the successful 2022 campaign. Once again, we must act boldly in order to achieve a successful outcome. We should innovate in a broader sense, and put our ideas into practice in an equitable manner.

Our planet needs our investment now. As we look forward to 2023, it is necessary that we come together once again in partnership for our Mother Earth.
