Can Humans Coexist With Planet Earth Without Destroying it?
Earth Day, also called International Mother Earth Day, began in the US in 1970 as a day to celebrate
the planet and encourage people to become more environmentally friendly. It is now an annual event that is widely regarded as the beginning of the modern environmental movement. It recognizes that “the Earth and its ecosystems are our home” and that “it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.”
A wide range of events and campaigns are held and started on Earth Day. Please go to the Earth Day Network website to find out about how you can get involved in Earth Day or subsequent campaigns.
