On April 22nd, we celebrate the Earth Day. On this day, more than one million people around the world join forces to draw attention to what’s been happening to the planet. Not only climate changes but also the quality of life of human beings has been an issue.
The date, considered as the birth of the environment movement, is celebrated since 1970 as an initiative by the Earth Day Network. The institution has endeavored to encourage environmental awareness through activities that people could reflect and recognize the importance of the relationship between people and the Earth.
Over 40 years later, we experience one of the most critical moments due to climate change and the neglect with which we treat our home. We have witnessed floods destroying cities, tornadoes devastating communities, earthquakes ruining populations, landslides displacing families, excessive heat melting glaciers and causing a great imbalance in the ecosystem, outsized drought and rain in unimaginable places. Well, the Earth is crying for help and the time to act is now.
So, join the thousands of activities happening around the world. Also, visit the website of the Earth Day 2012 and learn all about it. If each one of us takes action, together we can make a difference. We are all responsible for the Earth and we should start taking care of its health.
Are you all ready?
