International Mother Earth Day will be celebrated this Saturday, April 22. This is a day that provides an opportunity to raise public awareness around the world regarding the challenges our planet faces each day as well as in the future. This years theme is “Environmental & Climate Literacy.”

This Earth Day an ambitious goal has been created: strive to achieve global climate and environmental literacy by Earth Day 2020. It is important that we all understand that this special day is celebrated to remind each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life and sustenance. It also recognizes the collective responsibility, as called for in the 1992 Rio Declaration, to promote harmony with nature and Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and environmental needs of present and future generations of humanity.

International Mother Earth Day and Education

There is no doubt that one of the best places to build a strong foundation for this day is in the classroom. After all, education is the foundation for progress. Everyone needs to be empowered with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.

Earth Day has been around for a number of years. It was first celebrated April 22, 1970. Although it was created in the US it became recognized throughout the world 20 years later. In celebration of the first Earth Day 20 million people gathered throughout America. Their purpose was to protest the industrial revolution. This saw the birth of the environmental movement.

Earth Day can be celebrated in a variety of ways. This is often a day where men, women, and children collect garbage, plant trees, sign petitions, attend seminars, workshops, and other events. The day is planned to promote a better future for our planet.
