Appeal of Earth day on 22nd April 2020

 

Earth Day is Celebrated on 22nd April of every year. This year’s celebration marks the 50th Anniversary of the Earth Day. The theme for the Earth Day 2020 is “Climate Action”. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.

The first Earth Day is credited with launching the modern environmental movement, and is now recognized as the planet’s largest civic event. The first Earth Day in 1970 launched a wave of action, including the passage of landmark environmental laws in the United States. The Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts were created in response to the first Earth Day in 1970, as well as the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Many countries soon adopted and enacted
similar laws.

Earth Day continues to hold major international significance: In 2016, the United Nations chose Earth Day as the day when the historic Paris Agreement on climate change was signed into force. The world needs you — and your actions — for Earth Day 2020.

On Earth day, April 22, 2020, we will pledge to create immediate response to replenish nature to fight against pandemic and to build resilience and adaptive capacity for ongoing Climate Change.
