Each year on April 22, billions of people across the globe join together to raise awareness about environmental protection. This global event is known as Earth day. Earth Day was first celebrated in the United States on April 22, 1970. Today around 1 billion people in 193 countries take part in Earth Day and resolve to protect the environment and biodiversity. Now, time has come for Earth Day 2022.
Although the first Earth Day celebration was held on April 22, 1970, the foundation was laid in 1968.
In 1968, the US Public Health Service organized the Human Ecology Symposium. The event invited students to come and listen to scientists talking about the impact of the deteriorating environment on human health.
This is the moment to change it all — the business climate, the political climate, and how we take action on climate. Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, our livelihoods… together, we must Invest In Our Planet.
Because a green future is a prosperous future.
We need to act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). It’s going to take all of us. All in. Businesses, governments, and citizens — everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. A partnership for the planet.
And while there is still time to solve the climate crisis, time to choose BOTH a prosperous and sustainable future, and time to restore nature and build a healthy planet for our children and their children, time is short.
