Earth Day 2021

In more than 150 countries around the world, Earth Day is celebrated today on April 22.

Planet Earth is the third to the Sun, and is 4.5 billion years old. Earth Day is celebrated to strengthen people’s awareness of the natural environment. Various events and actions seek to draw people’s attention to the danger that threatens life on Earth due to rising global pollution and to encourage them to become aware of the problem of environmental pollution.

The idea of ​​marking Earth Day was first introduced in 1969, but has been officially celebrated since 1992, when a far-reaching program to promote sustainable development was agreed at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, at the suggestion of the Bolivian government. In 2009, the United Nations General Assembly officially declared April 22 as International Earth Day.

It has its own slogan and goal every year, and this year’s is ‘Restore Our Earth’. In addition, it has its own anthem, Earth Day Anthem, written in 2013 by Indian poet Abhay Kumar and recorded in all official UN languages.

In Croatia, Earth Day has been celebrated since 1990.
