After your Easter celebrations, don’t forget about Earth Day on April 22nd, this year focusing in global warming and a push for clean energy. Celebrated worldwide, Earth Day has brought people together through the years to seek action to reduce the impact human activity has had on our environment; and how we can change them to have a better tomorrow for our next generation.
Back in 1970 Gaylord Nelson, a then U.S Senator, had the idea to have a day focusing on the environment after the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, CA and inspired by the student anti-war movement, he thought that the only way to push for a change, was with public consciousness. Bringing a team together to organize and promote events across the country, the first Earth Day brought 20 million people out in the streets and by the end of the year created the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Act! Finally, in 1992 the United Nations conference on Earth Summit was created for Member States to work together on international development issues, making Earth Day a worldwide force.
Always exciting to know how when people work together amazing things can happen, regardless of race, religion, political views or socioeconomic background.
