Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 every year. The day is also known as International Mother Earth Day. The day is observed to spread awareness about issues, including the rampant increase in pollution, global warming, and deforestation, which harm the environment and result in the destruction of the planet. Countries from all over the world come together to raise awareness about the dire need to protect our environment.

The theme of World Earth Day 2023 is "Invest in Our Planet", calling for businesses to shift towards sustainable practices. Yes, it will be a continuation of the successful 2022 campaign. This movement is expected to change the business climate, the political climate, and how to take the action on the climate. "Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods, " says

Senator Gaylord Nelson established Earth Day in the 1970s. He wanted to promote ecology and increase public awareness of issues pertaining to the environment. He was concerned after seeing the horror of the oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, in early 1969.

On April 22, 1970, 20 million American citizens took to the streets across the city to protest against environmental crises such as water pollution, oil spills, forest fire, air pollution, etc. That street protest created a huge buzz and spread like wildfire as hundreds of cities joined gradually the revolution to make it one of the biggest protests on the globe. From the first World Day movement to the current World Day 2022 celebration, the planet made the largest civic event to remember forever.

Now, Earth Day is celebrated to spread awareness through various seminars, events, and concerts. These modern environmental movements help the world realize the need to nurture the planet for better living.

Earth Day is celebrated across the globe to turn the limelight on the issues the environment is facing and to come up with actions against the illness of the planet.
