Earth Day is an annual event marked on April 22nd that aims to raise awareness and inspire action to protect the environment. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day has grown into a global movement with millions of people around the world participating in various activities and events to promote sustainability and conservation efforts.
One of the main goals of Earth Day is to raise awareness about the impact that human activities have on the environment. Activities like deforestation, pollution, and overfishing are causing significant damage to ecosystems and threatening the survival of many species. Earth Day provides an opportunity to educate people about these issues and encourage them to take action to address them.
Another important aspect of Earth Day is the promotion of sustainable practices. From recycling to using renewable energy, there are many ways that individuals can reduce their impact on the environment. Earth Day events often feature workshops and activities that provide information on how to adopt more sustainable practices and reduce waste.
Earth Day also provides an opportunity to advocate for policy changes that can help protect the environment. Activists and organisations use the day to call for stronger environmental protections, greater investment in renewable energy, and other policy changes that can help address environmental challenges.
