Earth Day

April 22

Each year, Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise awareness about and reflect on environmental issues. This year, the theme for Earth Day is “Restore Our Earth.”

The theme is based on the emerging concept that rejects the idea that our only options to save the planet are to mitigate or adapt to the impacts of climate change and other environmental damage. Scientists, nongovernmental organizations, business and governments worldwide are now looking at natural system processes and emerging green technologies to restore the world’s ecosystems and forests, conserve and rebuild soils, improve farming practices, restore wildlife populations and rid the world’s oceans of plastics.
