Earth Day in
Days to go:
Earth Day is observed globally to highlight the importance of environmental conservation and increase awareness about issues related to our planet's environment. It is an annual event focused on acknowledging the vital role of earth's natural resources and our responsibilities towards safeguarding them. Important aspects encompassed by Earth Day include climate change, deforestation, pollution, energy conservation, and promoting clean, renewable energy sources.
Having originated in the United States in 1970, Earth Day now spans across 192 countries, including Australia. Australians, known for their rich and unique biodiversity, face diverse environmental challenges due to climate change such as severe bushfires, flooding, and the bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef. Earth Day therefore resonates deeply with the Australian populace, providing an opportunity to actively participate in the global movement towards meaningful environmental change.
In Australia, Earth Day is observed with various events and activities organized by environmental groups, schools, and communities. Activities include educational talks, tree-planting events, community clean-ups, conservation projects, and environmental-friendly initiatives. Individuals, schools, and businesses are also encouraged to make sustainable choices, reduce waste, conserve water and energy, and support renewable energy solutions. Earth Day takes place annually on the 22nd of April, a date observed consistently across the globe, including Australia.
