Every year, millions gather to commemorate Earth Day in support of current environmental affairs.
What is Earth Day?
Earth Day is celebrated on the 22nd of April every year, uniting millions of people worldwide to discuss environmental issues and suggest policies that focus on preserving the environment. Initially proposed in the 1970s, Earth Day is joined by activists, politicians and policymakers, in a bid to actively share climate concerns globally.
Originating in the US, Earth Day was focused on a nationwide scale. Now it is one of the most celebrated and significant international holidays. The landmark Paris Agreement discussed during Earth Day 2016 is a treaty signed by 120 countries to actively work toward bettering the environment and implementing climate protective policies. Earth Day 2020 marked its 50th anniversary and was joined by over 100 million people worldwide, making it one of the largest online events in history.
Earth Day 2021: Restore Our Earth
Annually, Earthday.org hosts a number of events pertaining to current climate issues. This year, panels including famous climate activists such as Greta Thunberg will present a discussion on climate and environmental justice. Climate change educators will examine their role in leading a climate forward society, and workshops will feature current and prominent climate topics, among other events. These events are available for all.
Events are organised on a digital platform and a number of resources are available to learn how you can be part of the change. The climate crisis is far from over, and events such as Earth Day serve as a reminder that a concerted effort is needed to combat further environmental degradation. Be it through personal action, or action for your job in Malta or abroad, we can build sustainable practices in our everyday lives.
