We celebrate Earth Day this April 22, 2021

Earth Day serves as a symbol of our efforts to protect Earth, and safeguard the environment and all its present and future inhabitants.

Its root go back to environmental activism in the 1960s and 1970’s and the movements centered around environmental awareness and protection (see Earth Day history) .

Additonally, April 22 was declared as International Mother Earth Day by the UN General Assembly on 2009. And on Earth Day (22 April) of 2016, the United Headquarters hosted the Opening Ceremony of Paris Agreement that saw 175 signatures from world leaders.
