Today, 22nd April, is Earth Day – an annual event that shines a light on the serious environmental issues that our world is facing and what actions we can take as individuals and organisation to keep temperature rises below 1.5 C and promote a greener future.
It involves a wide range of events involving 1 billion people in more than 193 countries.
The official theme for 2022 is ‘Invest in Our Planet’.
Every Earth Day can drive a year of energy, enthusiasm and commitment to create a new plan of action for our planet.
Earth Day works in countries around the world to drive meaningful action for our planet across a range of issues. For more information on the campaigns and to find out what is happening in your area this Earth Day: https://earthday.org/earth-day-2022
