World Earth Day, also known as “Earth Day”, was first celebrated on April 22, 1970 in the United States. Led by Democratic Senator Gaylord Nelson, the Earth Day Network is primarily tasked with training and implementing environmental movements around the world through awareness of global warming, plastic pollution and biodiversity loss.
Earth Day encourages citizens to take action for the environment in their daily lives and to fight against global warming because climate change will not bring any organism.
Every April 22nd, as part of World Earth Day, is dedicated to ensuring the safety of the planet and educating citizens on the subject.
The uniqueness of our planet
Earth Day is a celebration of the uniqueness of our planet with its incredible biodiversity. UN On its official website, “International Mother Earth Day” DNA is very precisely about raising awareness of the challenges facing our planet, and it is the Earth and its ecosystems that nurture and maintain us. Our steps throughout life. In short, our only home. On this day various national and international activities are being carried out to understand biodiversity and how to protect our nature, plants, animals and the overall environment. Some of the measures taken include encouraging the purchase of green materials, reducing waste, recycling and reusing or promoting the fight against climate change.
Steps to the future
As written above, the idea of dedicating one day to the Earth was born in the 1960s at a time of great sourness and cultural change in the United States, and following the publication of the ecological book “Silent Spring”. By an American biologist. The success of the book was immense and led to better environmental movements.
A day to respect the concept of earth and peace
A few years later, in 1969, at a UNESCO conference, John McConnell, a clergyman of peace, proposed a day to honor the concept of the earth and peace.
The project received strong support, followed by the celebration of “Earth Day” in San Francisco.
The original Earth Day of history
It was the first and original Earth Day in history, which coincided with the date of the spring solstice, a day now completely forgotten. Traditionally, the peace bell rang at the United Nations headquarters.
The other Earth Day, something we all know, was born out of the idea of Senator Nelson, an environmental Democrat, after a major environmental disaster.
whats going on?
Between January and February 1969, the largest oil spill ever occurred in the area off the coast of Santa Barbara, California. Following an explosion in an oil field 10 km from the coast, about 100,000 barrels of crude oil spilled into the sea and beach in about 100,000 days.
Disaster and commitment
Birds, dolphins, seals, sea lions and the surrounding environment have been compromised over the years but a race against time has been unleashed to find a solution to the disaster. There was a public outcry across the United States with massive media coverage that led to the emergence of major environmental protection regulations. At the event, 20 million people (10% of the total U.S. population at the time) rallied across the United States and took to the streets.
Senator Nelson understood that it was time to bring the environmental issue to the attention of the political world.
“All people have the right to a healthy, balanced and sustainable environment, regardless of race, gender, income or geographical origin.”
This is the goal of one of his famous speeches, and the theme of the Earth Day proclamation. In 1970 the UN established the first World Earth Day at the behest of environmental movements.
The world and the environment
Since then April 22 has become World Earth Day, and this year marks its 51st anniversary. Initially the celebration was limited to the United States, but within a few years it spread around the world and reached more than 180 countries.
This year’s 2021 theme is “Restore Our Earth”, (We are repairing / rehabilitating our Earth). Its goal is not only to reduce environmental damage through the use of natural processes, green technology and innovative techniques, but also to try to repair damage to the earth.
