Earth Day is a promise to change. It is a promise to take on environmental challenges and do the best one can to preserve what we have. The motto is to change the business climate, the political climate and take action on climate.
Earth Day, observed across the globe requires all to act boldly, innovate broadly and implement equitably. This is the time for a partnership for the planet.
The theme for Earth Day 2022 is ‘Invest in Our Planet’.
The first Earth Day was held on April 22, 1970, when San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration. Dealing with dangerously serious issues concerning toxic drinking water, air pollution, and the effects of pesticides, an impressive 20 million Americans 10% of the population ventured outdoors and protested together.
Today, not only is Earth Day a day meant to increase awareness of environmental problems, but it is also becoming a popular time for many communities to gather together to clean up litter, plant trees, or simply reflect on the beauty of nature.
